Chicory Zuccherina di Trieste Organic (40-18B)

Current stock: 104


Chicory Zuccherina di Trieste. Certified Organic.  Fast grower. Heart-shaped, light green leaves with almost no ribbing and very tiny stems. 30 days to cutting size. Will regrow after cutting, but it is just as easy and quality is higher if you succession plant. Sow seeds and inch apart from 3 weeks before last frost. Cover or rake in lightly and keep moist until seeds emerge in a week or so. Succession plant every three weeks. Does well spring, summer and fall. Like all chicories, it will do well in cold weather and should survive well into the winter.  7 gr. packet. Approx. 4,000 seeds.

good fresh or cooked

Tasty greens, nice and bitter. Grew these as an experiment to see if I could sub them for escarole in recipes since these didn't require me to start them inside if I don't want to wait forever like with escarole. Happy to see that they sub nicely. A few even overwintered in zone 7 this year since it was mild and are now producing more.
