Burdock is a large, brown root cultivated for its tender, crunchy white flesh which has a sweet, mild, earthy flavor reminiscent of artichokes. This highly nutritious root is a favorite in East Asia, and an essential part of the Zen Buddhist diet. Add to soups and stir-fries for richer flavor, or make traditional dishes like Chinese Burdock Bone Soup, Kimpira Gobo and Ueong Jorim. This first-year winter-hardy variety flowers ornamental purple burs from July to October and provides essential pollen and nectar for honeybees around August. Burdock plants can grow up to 3 feet tall.

Also Known As: niúbàng (牛蒡), gobō, u-eong (우엉), tong u-eong (통우엉), ci cai ji, dong yang lu bo, edible burdock, gobo, ngao pong, niu pang, uang.
