This easy to grow plant produces abundant insect free greens for salads or stir fry. It’s in the chicory family with blue flowers. Robust greens produces year round fresh greens even through the heat of summer and on through fall and winter. Some of them sent up seed stalks and produced a blue flower like chicory so I think they are in the same family. The inner leaves are good for salads while the larger leaves are good in soups or stir fry.
