(Cichorium intybus) Popular in Italy, hardy and excellent for early spring greens; great cooked like asparagus. This strain has very long, slender, Dandelion-like leaves. Pick small for salads.

What are the pros? Taste, yield, ease of growth

What are the cons? None that I can think of.

Review:

Planted two varieties of "Dandelion" greens this spring; this one and the Italko Rosso varieties. The latter was beautiful with red ribs, but this one had a more mild bitter taste, not too overbearing and perfect in veggie scrambles. Adds a great body to salads and dishes and stays nearly 100% resistant to all pests in the garden including slugs, ear-wigs, caterpillars, aphids, et cetera. Good for Italian. Planted in spring and when it finally began to bolt a couple weeks ago I cut the tower of buds forming. Two more came back in it's place and I'm letting them flower. I just now discovered they have beautiful deep blue flowers that should be advertised with these seeds! I don't know which I like better now, the leaf of the flower! I'm thinking this might make a good center-piece in a pot of leafy greens next year - I will absolutely grow this variety again. Leaves are ready to eat quickly but it takes a very long season to flower.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, very edible

What are the cons? Takes its time growing.

Review:

Very pretty, simple leaves, and even though they have a slow growth pattern, they do grow, and without needing help, too much sun, or water. I'm hoping they eventually flower. Easily cooked in soups and added to salads. If you want an easy, nutritious leafy green, this works.

What are the pros? easy to grow, tasty

What are the cons? on the mild side?

Review:

This variety has long narrow leaves without indentations. This grew like gangbusters for me in the fall winter time frame. I have some leafy and green in the garden now in early Feb and I have had for some time. Nice mild taste. I cook it with rice in the steamer or put it in soups but many folks would enjoy as a fresh green. I don't know if it would be considered early or not. I enjoyed this variety. Will attempt to save seed if possible.

Still looking for puntarella

What are the pros? Leafy dandelion

What are the cons? Not Roman Puntarella

Review:

I was hoping this dandelion was just what they sell in the markets of Rome and what they make puntarella salads out of....it is not. While it grew tasty dandelions, it had more leaf and ribs too small for the famous salad. I grew seeds from Rome side by side.
