Dandelion - the easy-to-identify (and find) edible plant | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
Many are surprised to find that the Dandelion plant is edible. The Dandelion grows from unbranched taproots and produces more than 10 stems. The stems, which are sparsely covered with short hairs, are slightly purplish and produce flowerheads that are typically taller than the foliage. Dandelion leaves have a jagged edge, grow close to the ground, and are seldom more than 20 centimeters (8 inches) long. The flowers are bright yellow. http://wildernessarena.com/food-water-shelter/food-food-water-shelter/food-procurement/edible-wild-plants/dandelion
