Shungiku (Chrysanthemum coronarium), packet of 50 seeds, organic

$2.95

Family:  Aster (Asteraceae)

Annual, 30 to 40 days to harvest.

(Edible Chrysanthemum, Garland Chrysanthemum, Chop Suey Greens, Tong hao) This is a cultivated strain originally from China. The smooth, crunchy and richly textured young green leaves are delicious eaten raw or as a steamed vegetable with rice.The bright yellow flowers are edible, an artsy and highly aromatic touch for kitzy salads.  They grow well in association to carrots or other greens and they provide a lot of fresh, fast greens in the spring, when lettuces are still small.  Sow in consecutive crops to prolong supply.
