Burdock Seeds - Chiko - Heirloom Untreated NON-GMO From Canada

Burdock Seeds - Chiko

(Arctium lappa) Biennial. 120 days to maturity.  

Burdock Chiko is a highly versatile root vegetable. It has both culinary and medicinal uses. We also love that Burdock can be overwintered in the soil, for use in nearly every season. Be mindful of where you plant Burdock, as its prickly flowers become large burs when mature. A tasty alternative to both parsnips and carrots – see for yourself! Roots can grow up to 2 feet!  

Each seed packet contains approximately 50 untreated open pollinated burdock seeds.


Timing: Direct seed after last frost or start indoors 2-3 weeks before last frost date.

Seeding: Burdock requires a deep, 1-2', well-drained soil to produce quality roots. Sow anytime in spring, about 2" apart, 3/4" deep, in rows 24" apart. Thin to 2-3" apart. 

Soil: Burdock prefers loamy soil and a neutral pH in areas with average water. 

Harvest: Fall through early spring. A raised bed with removable sides enables harvesting from the side, which results in fewer broken roots.

Storage: Optimum storage at (0°C) and 95% relative humidity. Unwashed roots will be slower to wilt at market.
