Cichorium intybus


An introduced perennial from Europe to North America, where it has colonized much of the continent. The leaves can be eaten raw while the root can be ground up as a coffee substitute. However, as these plants are most common in roadside environments where harmful pollutants can gather, it is best to not consume them on a regular basis.
