• Witloof Chicory Vegetable Seeds

Chicorium intybus

“Witloof” which means white leaf, is quick and easy to grow as a salad green. It adds a delicious, unique tang to salads. The same plant can be used to produce 'chicons': The roots are stored and then "forced", producing a compact head of blanched, creamy, crisp, sweet leaves. Quite a process....but worth the wait.

Harvest at around 60 days for salad greens and up to 160 days for 'chicons'.


Standard packet contains approx 150 seeds

Petite packet contains approx 50 seeds
