True wild Dandelions grow as tender perennials that originate from Italy and are technically a family member of chicory herbs. Italian Dandelions, which are different from True Dandelions, are vigorous growers and entirely edible with forest-green leaves that provide savory flavor when cooked, similar to collard greens. Dried chicory can also be added to coffee and is a popular beverage in New Orleans!
Non-GMO (Taraxacum officinale) Italian (Chicory) Dandelion plants grow as vigorous tender perennials. As heirlooms, chicory will develop upright and reach 2-5" tall. Chicory herbs as Italian Dandelion loose-leaf varieties begin producing baby greens that should be picked early in the season. Once chicory reaches full maturity, it grows forest-green serrated leaves, with nectar-sweet paisley flowers by late spring or fall. Next year, your nutrient-rich dandelion roots will be ready. As your region has its first frost, dandelion herbs die back, keeping their roots overwinter.
