CHICORY – WITLOOF

Cichorium Endivia

60 to 160 days — Traditionally Witloof chicory is quite fine when grown as a standard salad green.  It originated in Belgium in the mid-1800s. Witloof is Flemish for “white leaf.” The plant produces excellent yields of 30 to 45 cm tall light green chicory. A European delicacy now popular all over the world. It is very sweet & delicious. Adds color and flavor to mixed salad and is great when lightly cooked. Also known as Belgium Endive. Excellent choice for home gardens and specialty market growers. A 1800s heirloom variety from Belgium. The roots can be dried and roasted as a coffee substitute. Keep the soil lightly moist until germination. This plant grows best in rich soil but also adapts well to poor soil.
