Size *
Current stock: 0


Chicory Spadona. Cutting chicory for salads. Long leaves, very thin, almost non-existent stem. Leaves are rounded and smooth without any serration. Fast grower - 30 days to early cutting. Will regrow after cutting but it is just as easy and the quality is higher if you succession sow. Broadcast sow in a prepared bed from three weeks before first frost. Make new plantings every three weeks or so. Will take fairly strong frosts. 10 or 30 gram packet.

It keeps coming back

I planted this early last spring, and cut at the eary stage to mix with other greens after about 35 days. I have a household garden and gave this about 4 square feet of a bed. It just kept coming back. Eventually, I let some grow out and it was great sauted with a little EVOO and garlic. These plants producted into late fall. Easy and prolific, as well as very tasty!
