Previous Burdock Root  Seed #070  Next Burdock Root

A special, late-variety burdock that is rich in flavor. It is the most popular variety in Japan. Mature plant can reach 3 feet in height. Roots can be harvested in 4-5 months if planted in spring. Cut root into slivers and stir-fry. This important Japanese vegetable is essential to many classic Japanese dishes including "kimpira," made with sautéed burdock and carrots. Burdock is rich in vitamin B and minerals.

From one of our customers, W. Takahashi:

I have a tip for growing Gobo without the intense digging normally associated with gobo. I start seeds early inside on a hot pad (Zone 5). Garden prep: Cut 4" PVC into 36" Lengths and then in half lengthwise. Bury the PVC starting 2"-3" deep at surface and the deepest end at 12" (at a cant). I plant the seedlings at the top end, positioned to ensure roots will follow PVC, keeping plants watered & fertilized. Once established, I mulch heavily with straw. I normally overlap each PVC with a 15" spacing of the plants requiring harvesting from the last plant first. Harvesting requires minimal efforts. My father bought seeds from you in the 1940's and I found one of your old seed packets after he passed away and just kept it.

  • Approx. 200-300 seeds in packet. (A seed will vary in weight and size within a given seed lot. The number of seeds stated is only an estimate.)
  • Maturity: Approx. 120 days
  • Planting season: Spring or fall
