The seeds of this variety are sown quite thickly from May to August to produce a cut and come again salad until late October. Can also be sown thickly under glass all year round for ‘salad leaves’.
After frosts cut down foliage, leave until March when new growth will appear and form rosettes of exceptional flavour. As these will often be the first fresh chicory to be harvested in early spring they are much appreciated. By cutting with a small piece of root, the flavour will be enhanced. Can also be cut later when small heads have formed.
