Catalunya Chicory "Rossa Italiana" - Cichorium intybus var. foliosum.
Mid-season leafy variety. The plant forms a powerfully raised rosette. The leaves are very delicate, strongly dissected, dark green.
The petioles are claret. Young leaves contain a large amount of vitamin C, carotene, B vitamins, valuable organic acids. In the summer and autumn seasons, it is cut off many times as it grows back.
Used for making salads.
Sowing is carried out at the end of May (earlier sowing leads to stalking). Care consists of loosening, watering, fertilizing. Root crops are harvested before the onset of frost.
Delicate texture and balanced sweet taste of dark burgundy, without pulp rings, ensured this mid-season variety an undeniable victory at all tastings.
Vitamin snack, vinaigrette, borscht - the taste and quality of such favourite traditional dishes depends primarily on it, so their main component should be truly sweet, bright and juicy.
1,0 g = 600 seeds.
