Organic Chicory - Grumola Verde
This chicory features round leaves with rosette shaped plants for winter use, but larger blade-shape leaves in summer.
Sow the seeds direct from June to July and thin the plants out to 20cm spacing. They are ready to harvest from October to December. They can be forced at room temperature for about 3 - 4 weeks by excluding light. Sow in modules from February to April. To get good germination the seed requires a temperature of over 18C. Can be transplanted under cover or outdoors
