dandelion leaf

Dandelion is a perennial member of the sunflower family with a global distribution. Although many westerners regard the plant as a nuisance weed in the garden and lawn, dandelion has been valued as a food source and remedial botanical in the Middle East and Europe since the 10th century.

Aside from value as a salad green and vegetable, fresh or dried dandelion leaf is traditionally prepared as a tea, either hot or iced. In addition to being a good source of calcium, potassium, iron and other minerals, dandelion leaf is abundant in vitamins A, B, C, D and K and the antioxidants luteolin, zeaxanth and cryptoxanth.

Description: Dandelions are perennial. They are short plants that usually don't grow larger than 2 feet high. They green stalks and leaves and yellow flowers. They grow wild in the spring. The leaves should be picked in the spring. The Dandelion roots can be harvested in late autumn. They should only be used from plants that are at least 2 years old.
