Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) has been a staple in the traditional medicines of Russia, India, China, Turkey, North America, and Mexico for centuries.
Whether you see it as a wish-upon flower or a weed to banish from your lawn, the humble dandelion offers so much more than meets the eye. Every part of the dandelion plant is edible, with high-end restaurants using the greens in salads, home aficionados making wine from the flowers, and a coffee substitute from the roots. Dandelions boast a full array of vitamins and nutrients like A, B, C, D, E, K, magnesium, zinc, iron, potassium, and fiber.
