Just superb in flavor.

It's crisp and succulent, with the perfect balance of bitter and sweet. Since I first grew it last year, it's been my favorite leafy vegetable, and one I don't expect to be surpassed any time soon.

Dear gardeners, If you haven't grown the chicory family yet this is a great place to start. Remember these are cool weather crops. Start them in the late summer or fall and cover with a cold frame or cloche when the temp. gets really cold. This particular chicory forms a nice cone shaped head, and is sweet like iceberg lettuce but better than iceberg lettuce. Your friends will know your a master gardener with these pretty cones of green in your winter landscape.
