Excellent forcing variety of chicory that’s compact and has a great flavour. Add to salads, steamed or braised with olive oil. Delicious!

Sowing outdoors

Create a 2cm (3/4 in) deep row in the soil. Water the row well before sowing. Sow seeds thinly in the row and cover the seeds with a thin layer of soil. Keep soil moist until seedlings are established. When seedlings produce a head of leaves thin to plants at 20cm (8in) apart.

Growing on

Keep crops regularly well-watered.

Forcing for sweet and succulent white-leaf crops.

Lift plants in October or November, cutting off the leaves to leave a 2.5cm (1 in) stump. Place five stumps upright in a 20cm (8in) pot. Pack moist soil or sand around the roots. Place in full darkness around 12°C (55°F). Remove plants in two to three weeks and your chicory plants will be tender, succulent and white-green.

Please note that these great value seeds have a recommended sow/best before date of 2022 making them perfect for sowing this year. We put this date on simply to ensure the freshest seed for the best possible germination results. If you are purchasing now for next year’s sowing we expect the seed to still be viable as they are packed and stored by us in optimum conditions but you may notice slightly lower germination rates depending on how and where you store them
