Product Description

Stunning red ribs and deep green leaves make this chicory a real eye-catcher. Chicory is a must for any mesclun mix or Italian salad as it adds great flavour and colour.

Chicory is only slightly more bitter than Cos lettuce and is a great salad green during cooler weather.

Frost and drought tolerant, it does well in most soils as well as pots.
