This Italian heirloom chicory is similar to lettuce but with a more distinct flavour. For use in salads or cooked, it produces deep red, heart shaped, white veined leaves wrapped tightly around one another to form a solid, round head. These tender and crunchy leaves have a slightly bitter, sharp flavour which mellows when grilled or treated with a hot oil dressing.

Sowing Advice

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.
