Cichorium intybus

Chicory is also known as Radicchio. Dark green outer leaves, with a 10-15cm red wine coloured head and white ribs. Attractive variety, bitter & spicy taste. Use in Italian dishes, salads, steamed and boiled. 

Chicory prefers to be grown during cooler weather so planting between Autumn and late Winter is ideal. This can vary depending on your local climate.

Sow seeds in pots and cover with 3mm of soil, keep moist until germinated. Transplant seedlings to the garden at 3-5cm high, preferably in a  full sun position with fertile well drained soil. Spacing plants 30cm apart will give the best results. Snails and slugs can damage the heads so the use of snail pellets or home made traps is recommended. After 80 days you can harvest the centre head.
