Chicory, Rossa Italiana (aka Red Italian Dandelion) 50 days Cichorium intybus

Actually a type of Chicory, however the leaves (and bitter flavor) are strongly reminiscent of dandelion, hence the common name.  Deep maroon red midribs stand in a beautiful contrast to the dark green leaves.  As with all chicories, an ice water soak before consumption can help to minimize bitterness.  This is a wonderful addition of savory salads with its sublime beauty.  Biennial growth habit performs best in cooler spring or fall weather.  SSF
