Opinions differ on the origin of dandelion's genus name, Taraxacum. Some believe that it derives from the Persian talkh chakok, "bitter herb." Others propose that it derives from the Greek taraxos, "disorder," and akos, "remedy." Still others believe it could be derived from the Greek taraxia, "eye disorder," and akeomai, "to cure," as the plant was traditionally used as a remedy for eyes. The common name dandelion derives from the French dent de lion, "tooth of the lion," in reference to the jagged shape of the leaves.
Dandelion is considered one of the five most nutritious vegetables on Earth. The young leaves, gathered before the flower stalk achieves full height and the flowers have not yet formed, may be eaten raw, used as a potherb, or juiced. The young flowers, with the green sepals removed, have a sweet, honeylike flavor and can be eaten raw. The root can be cleaned and prepared like carrots or pickled. The roots are sometimes roasted and used as a coffee substitute. Dandelion wine and beer are most enjoyable.
