(Watanabe Burdock)  Biennial native to temperate Europe and Asia  The long, thin, early-maturing roots of Watanabe are the best we’ve ever had for eating.  They are smooth textured and sweetly nutritious as a boiled vegetable or scrubbed hard and grated in a ginger and tamari marinade.   Sow seed in spring directly in regular garden soil, thin to 6 inches apart and harvest that first year–like carrots.
