Cichorium intybus

French Endive or Witloof Chicory

Grown since at least the 1840's, this forcing variety will produce a dainty, delicate salad with a distinctive tangy flavour. Force roots in the winter to produce the 'chicons of culinary interest. C'est magnifique!

How to Grow

Sow seed in early spring. In autumn when the foliage dies back, lift the roots keeping only those that are at least 3 cm (1 1/2") in diameter at the top. Cut off the foliage leaving a 1 cm (1/2") stub then store the roots on their side packed with dry sand or peat moss in a cool, frost-free place. To force the roots, plant upright in pots filled with sand or soil-less peat mix. Lightly water. Keep the pot in a dark place at 10-15 C (50-60 F).
