Italiko Rosso Chicory


Italiko Rosso Chicory

(60 days) Open-pollinated. Savory Italian chicory often mistaken for a red dandelion. Nip off the deeply toothed red-veined leaves for a delectable treat. Ideal for braising, good in spicy mesclun, it imparts its mild dandelion flavor. Moderately tangy in cool weather, it can be somewhat bitter in summer’s heat.
