Verona Red chicory

Red chicory (Cicorino rosso) is a popular salad vegetable in Italy. The purplish rosettes can be harvested from the end of February to make a magnificent, slightly bitter salad. The roots can also be mixed in if they are finely chopped. This versatile and healthy plant gives your guests a taste of Italian gardens.

Sow in late June to early August. Space 25 cm apart and, come September, thin to 10 cm between plants. By the fall, leaves can reach 20–30 cm long. In winter, the redish-purple rosettes form and are cut from the end of February and onwards.
