Description

Cicoria Rossa Italiana. Some call this Red Dandelion, but it is a true chicory. Requires a rich, well-tilled soil. Mid-early, upright plant with a large, closely wrapped head. Intense gree, serrated leaves are tall, with large red ribs. Said to be an excellent forcing variety. Take the well-developed plants out in the fall, bunch the leaves and remove secondary roots. Then put in a cooler, closed tub or dark basement and cover lightly with soil. Be the first to let us know about this! 10 gram packet.

Grew well as a fall crop

Grew this from direct seed in Sept. Harvested leaves and boiled to blanch, chop and add to salads with greens, boiled potato, hard cooked eggs and a French vinagrette. It gave just the light bitter bite to make the salad. Truly delicious. Looking forward to trying to force the roots next.
