Chicory ‘Pain de Sucre’

Sold out
Botanical Name
Cichorium intybus

A large leaf chicory that is not so bitter but has a sweetness to the crisp, tender green leaves (hence the name sugarloaf). Leaves can be picked young or when mature as a whole head. The inside leaves of the mature plants self blanche. While this can be grown year round, it’s often grown through the winter months as an alternative to lettuce as it handles colder/wetter conditions. 300 seeds.
