CHICORY BRUSSELS WITLOOF
One of the best varieties for producing chicons, Brussels Witloof ('white leaf' in Flemish) has a delicious, tangy, unique flavour. It produces tightly packed high-quality leaves and is one of the finest tasting winter vegetables. It can be used as baby leaf in salads over the summer months, however it really excels when it is forced and blanched over the winter months to produce flavoursome chicons (or blanched shoots).
Sow thinly under protection in Feb-April for summer harvest, or May-August outdoors for harvest from October. Sow in rows 1/2" deep, with 1 ft between rows. Young seedlings should be thinned to 4" apart, then later to 10" apart. Alternatively they can be sown under glass all year round for for salad leaves'.
