Chicory is a perennial herb, which was introduced to North America from Eurasia and is now abundant across the continent. Its scientific name is “Cichorium itybus”. It is a member of the Aster family. The flowers are usually a clear violet-blue-although occasionally a white – or-pink-flowered form appears.
The tips of the petals are toothed. The long tap root of Chicory is commonly roasted and used as a substitute for coffee, and its leaves can be used in salads.
