Each year we look at wide range of chicory varieties to identify those
that are easiest to grow and have the best flavor. David's Garden Seeds carries an extensive line of chicories available for intriguing salad mix
options for all markets.
Chicory Dandelion Catalogna Special 200 Non-GMO, Open Pollinated
Catalogna Special Chicory (Italian Dandelion) is for salad mix or bunching. Long, deep green, slender, deeply cut leaves with white midribs. Slow-bolting and upright. Harvest in about 50 days.
Chicory Dandelion Clio Italian 200 Hybrid Seeds
Clio Italian Dandelion Chicory is similar but superior to Catalogna Special. It is more upright and more uniform, and thus delivers a higher marketable yield. For cut-and-come-again harvesting use Clio, which is less prone to bolting during regrowth. Clearly the best Catalogna type. Harvest in about 48 days.
Chicory Dandelion Italiko Red 200 Non-GMO, Open Pollinated Seeds
Adds beautiful red color to salad mix. Bold red stems and midribs for vibrant contrast. Deeply-lobed leaves with excellent flavor. Good heat and cold tolerance. Shows some variation in plant habit and leaf shape and color. Very similar to Garnet Stem, which it replaces. Harvest in about 50 days.
Chicory Dandelion Italiko Rosso 200 Non-GMO, Heirloom Seeds
Beautiful, bright red stems and deep green leaves make this variety a winner! Baby leaves add great tangy flavor to salads, or good as a cooked green. We offer true Italian seeds for this delicious heirloom. Harvest in about 50 days.
Chicory Endive Belgian Totem 50 Hybrid Seeds
The roots of Belgian Endive Totem Chicory is a Dutch variety that can be taken from the refrigerator or root cellar and forced successfully from September to January. The resulting "chicon" is a venerated European delicacy and welcome off-season leafy vegetable for salads and cooking. Organically grown. Harvest in about 115 days.
Chicory Endive Green Curled Ruffec 500 Non-GMO, Heirloom Seeds
The Green Curled Ruffec is a classic heirloom endive that adds a tasty and unusual punch to any salad or mesclun mix. Plant Green Curled Ruffec endive indoors or out and enjoy a bountiful harvest. Harvest in about 90 days.
Chicory Endive Rhodos 200 Non-GMO, Open Pollinated Seeds
Narrow, frilly, blanched leaves for salad mix. Rhodos is a small endive technically of the French Trés Fine Maraîchère type, often referred to as "frisée" in the salad mix trade. Smooth but deeply cut, toothed pale green leaves. Full-size heads form a mass of tender blanched leaves at the heart for salad mix. Like all T.F.M. types, it can be sensitive to tipburn (particularly in hot weather) and requires an attentive grower. Mild flavor. Harvest in about 50 days.
Chicory Escarole Eros 100 Non-GMO, Organic Seeds
Early organic escarole. Dense, heavy heads of mildly bitter leaves suitable for salads or sautéing. Similar to Natacha but about a week earlier, more compact, and with darker green leaves. Organically grown. Harvest in about 45 days.
Chicory Escarole Natacha 200 Open Pollinated Seeds
Escarole Natacha Chicory is the best performing escarole. It produces big, heavy heads with abundant, tender leaves, and creamy, blanched hearts with a mild, slightly bitter flavor. Remarkable tolerance to bolting, tipburn, and resistance to bottom rot, even in hot weather. One of the most attractive escaroles. Harvest in about 50 days.
Chicory Radicchio Indigo 25 Open Pollinated Seeds
Excellent uniformity and high yield potential for summer harvests. Indigo has been the most reliable radicchio in both our hot- and cool-weather trials. It is remarkably sure-heading, very tolerant to tipburn, and resistant to bottom rot. The firm, 4 to 5 inches in diameter heads are a nice burgundy color with good flavor. For spring, summer, and fall production. Harvest in about 65 days.
Chicory Radicchio Perseo 50 Open Pollinated Seeds
Radicchio Perseo Chicory is an extra-early radicchio. Smaller-sized heads allow for planting at higher densities. Uniform size and maturity. Earliest heading variety in our trials. Harvest in about 50 days.
All of the variety information on the David's Garden Seeds® website, including the days to
maturity, color and size are based on data from tests done at specific
locations. Many factors, including geographic location, daytime and
nighttime temperatures, the availability of plant nutrients, many unknown climate factors and insects/pest interact to determine a variety's
performance. For information on which varieties will perform best in
your area, we recommend that you contact your local county extension agent or a Master Gardener.
