Seed Saving: beginner
Wild Chicory (Cichorium intybus)
Wild Chicory (Cichorium intybus): found in the countryside, but different from Dandelions, this plant is perennial, bitter, and very tasty. We have many spontaneous varieties because growing in fields, there often isn't opportunity to collect them, or they go unrecognised; so we think if available they can become popular The spontaneous varieties are the summit of sustainability; rustic by definition, often perennial and prevailing on the competition with other varieties, almost zero water needs, and great nutritional properties. To be sown in spring.
