Product Description

Johnsons chicory seeds produce this sugarloaf variety with tender heads of distinctive flavour. Use leaves in salads or braise as a gourmet vegetable.

Thin out to 20cm apart when large enough to handle. Once plants have developed good sized heads, trim off the top of the plant, leaving approx 2.5cm above ground. Cover the stump with a bucket that blocks out all light. Harvest: 8-10 weeks from sowing when the heads are approx 20cm tall. You can get 2 or 3 heads per plant per season.

  • Sugarloaf variety with tightly packed heads
  • Serve fresh in salads
  • Very sweet flavour
