Burdock Chiko


Nutritious, medicinal, and a unique Asian specialty.

A great season-extension offering. For fall, winter, and spring harvest and storage. Can be overwintered in soil, much the same as parsnips. Cook like carrots. Easier to grow than both carrots and parsnips, with faster germination and good weed competition. Delicious in hearty soups and bean stews. Uniform variety. Roots are long, slender, and light brown.  Medicinal Properties.
