Item Ref #: 898 | Chicory- Chicoree Frisee Grande Pancaliere
Placed Outdoors


This variety is highly resistant to heat, and hence is particularly recommended for summer. It produces beautiful large leaves whitening naturally. 
Culinary Tip:

Chicory is delicious with a poached egg and some bacon.  

Culture Tip:

1. Sowing: Sow from March-April in a sunny location with fine rich potting soil.

2. Transplant: when plants reach 4-5 leaf stage, select the strongest seedlings and plant them in rows of 40 cm x 30 cm.

3. Harvest: Harvest from July-August. To reduce bitterness, blanch the heart when they reach 30 cm in diameter by tying leaves 8 to 10 days before harvesting. 

Companion Plants:

Chicory planted along cauliflower will save space and watering.
