A cross between the red dandelion and the endive, you get the best of both worlds with this old-fashioned garden treat. You can eat the leaves fresh, and you can allow them to form a nice head with pretty, red-flecked leaves. You can eat this as is, but if you want to cut out the slightly bitter flavour of the chicory, you can blanch it by transplanting and excluding light for a few weeks. However, cooking also reduces the bitterness, so see what suits you best.

  • Growing Information

    How to Sow

    If you may still get late frosts in spring, sow your chicory in containers in a protected spot. Otherwise, you can sow after the last frosts where they are to grow.

    How to Harvest

    Cut the leaves any time you like. They’re a very attractive addition to winter salads. When mature, the plant will form a head much like a lettuce. Then it’s up to you to decide whether you’ll eat it just like that or whether you want to try blanching by excluding light.
