Description

Sculpit/Stridolo

Sculpit or Stridolo is a fast-growing, mild-mannered annual blending complex flavors of Chicory, Arugula, Tarragon and other favorite greens. It's milder than that would suggest, with a flavor all its own. Found on the edge of crop fields and in forests and mountain pastures in its native Italy. 

History

In Galeata, a village in the Emilia-Romagna region, a festival at the end of April each year celebrates the sculpit. The town's streets come alive with stalls, while in Piazza Gramsci local chefs demonstrate dishes using sculpit, especially pasta and ravioli.

 
Uses

The sprigs are harvested before blooming and used in cooking, mainly for pasta, meat, vegetables, salads, omelets and risottos in Italy where this scarce gourmet green is found. Little known outside of Italy.

    Love this thing

    Grew this basically just to see what is tasted like and it has quickly become my favorite garden green. A perennial in my zone, 8a, as long as you trim it from time to time, it constantly produces gorgeous green leaves that go great in nearly every dish. It survives horrible heat, drought, four months of being ignored, only to explode into activity the minute I poked it with scissors.
