I can’t figure out what herb this is. It tastes kind of bitter!

  • It looks like beet to me. – zetaprime May 14 at 21:37

    Beet greens would have mode red veins. Dandelion leaves have a more 3d shape. My guess is Epazote (common in Mexican cuisine). It would be easier to identify if you photographed one of the leaves spread out on a flat surface and maybe with a size reference (like a ruler). – Lee Daniel Crocker May 14 at 23:42
  • Can you add some more information -- where did you find it, especially :) – Erica May 15 at 10:54
  • not dandelion, the edges are smoother – user57361 May 15 at 17:33

Where did you get it? Looks like it could be epazote.
