Greens dandelion

Taraxacum officinale
HOW TO GROW DANDELION

Start indoors 8 weeks before last frost, plant out after. Or direct sow 1 week before last frost in rows and thin to 6–12”. Before transplant, clip back ends of leaves to encourage new growth. Treat as biannual, sow one year, harvest the next. Keep moist during warm months. Keep the plants picked to enjoy the mildest leaves. Grow in partial to nearly full shade for larger, undivided leaves that stay tender and less bitter longer. Enjoy blanched leaves in the fall by covering with a flower pot for three weeks. Blanching reduces bitterness. Will self-seed and is difficult to remove once established. Plants may survive for 10 to 13 years in undisturbed locations. Surface sow, press into soil, do not cover. Soil pH 6.8–7.2. Hardiness zones 3–10. Perennial.

Usual seed life: 3–5 years.

Cultivated strain with tender, fleshy, dark green leaves, not a chicory. Used as green vegetable for boiling or in a salad. Roots can be used for forcing, or as substitute for coffee by roasting in an oven until crisp and then grinding. Flowers are used for wine making. Blanch to remove bitterness, squeeze the water out of them, chop them and lightly braise them with strong flavors like bacon, garlic and chiles. Dandelion greens are also lovely served slightly wilted in warm salads, as long as a strong red wine or sherry vinaigrette and/or rich flavors like a poached egg, toasted nuts or grated cheese round out their flavors. Tags: Color: Green, Season: Spring Fall.

Native to Eurasia and now is naturalized throughout North America, southern Africa, South America, New Zealand, Australia, and India. Delicious dandelion recipes.
