Chicory, Grumolo Rosso (Organic)
$3.50 – $12.00
Cichorium intybus. Rosette type. 60 days.
Red Grumolo type chicory, cold hardy and beautiful. Forms a beautiful rosette in winter through spring that is so pretty it could be used as a boutonniere. Also great harvested young for salad mix and as cut- and-come-again loose leaves. Shari Sirkin of Dancing Roots Farm in Troutdale, Oregon, tells us it has relentless regrowth when harvested for loose leaf production. She loves it! Slightly bitter tasting, but the bitterness of the species is greatly reduced by frosts, soaking in cold water, a quick blanching or with light cooking. Great cooked in risotto. One of our most cold hardy winter greens
