Burdock has been grown for centuries, mainly in China and Japan, for its culinary and medicinal uses. It is grown primarily for its crisp roots, but the leaves and stems are also edible. Salada Musume is an early, light-skinned, edible burdock or gobo that grows 12-16" long. This relatively short length makes it suitable for home gardens. In Japan, this variety is used fresh for salad and has a pleasant earthy aroma. Approximately 1,900 seeds per oz.
