If we lived in Northern Italy, this type of chicory would be very commonplace. However, in Canada, it is rarely grown. We love it as a Fall crop which gets so very sweet after repeated frosts. We use it in a Fall salad mix and hope you enjoy it. It is so beautiful to look at – each leaf is a masterpiece.
And if you receive a whole head, try cutting it in half and grilling it!! WOW! Topped with some of our pesto or even melted cheese – even the kids will love it!!
