Italian Dandelion
Cichorium intybus 'Garnet Stem'

It looks like a dandelion but it is actually a type of chicory popular in Italy for salads. The taste is agreeably bitter with an underlying base of sweetness. The dark green leaves with attractive red midribs are picked young, when less than 25cm/10in high. Good tolerance to both warm and cool weather. Sow direct in spring like leaf lettuce. 35-55 days.
