Mystery vegetable revealed!

Such good guesses. Now I want to get an Italian seed catalog, too! I was told this mystery vegetable is puntarelle (Catalogna de Galatina), a relative of chicory. If you do a search with that term, you can see images that pretty clearly match the photos I shared in previous posts, although the version I was sold was still immature, not fully bulbed out at the bottom.

I bought these beautiful, bitter greens at the Ann Arbor Westside Market from Dragonwood Farm in Clinton, MI. Now I am inspired to see what other vegetables are at the markets that are new to me! How about for all of you? Please comment if you find one. :-)

Well, now that I know the name, I will have to look it up! I haven't been to a farmers market for quite a while, but we now have one in stockbridge on fridays. On of these days I will have to check it out.
