Red-Veined Chicory

Commonly called Italian Dandelion, Red-Veined Chicory (Chicorium intybus) is an extremely hearty, easy-to-grow leafy green. Dense in vitamins and minerals, chicory leaves are excellent raw, steamed, braised, or stir-fried. The leaf stems become quite sweet in cooler temperatures. This leafy green is also quite bitter and is excellent for poor digestions...though most of the bitterness disappears when cooked.

This chicory is also grown for its root, which is commonly baked and ground to be used as a coffee substitute.

60 days. Perennial.
