Chicory Catalogna Brindisina. This chicory is grown for its stems. It has a small almost frilly leaf with very thick stem that comes together almost as a bulb. Very nice in salads. Slice up, soak in ice water for a few minutes (nice but not necessary) and serve in a salad. Does best in fall. 75-80 days. Set transplants 10 inches apart in rows 12-14 inches apart or direct seed, 2-4 seeds every 10-12 inches, thin to one plant. 10 gram packet.

It was a rough winter

and it took its toll on the puntarelle I planted, but I had excellent germination and close to half of the crop survived single digit cold and snow (with a light topping of straw). It's been a delicious spring green with the classic dressing that includes anchovies and I've also diced stalks into chicken salad to make it less bland.
