Magdeburg Chicory SOLD OUT
Sale price: $0.00


  • Chicorium intybus. Open pollinated. 120 days. Heirloom.
  • Grown chiefly for roots which are dug in late fall or winter. These are dried, ground, and roasted to enjoy as a coffee substitute or as a mellowing addition to coffee, such as you may have been served in New Orleans.
  • Large carrot shaped roots are sometimes cooked and eaten fresh with butter much like turnips or parsnips.

Planting Directions Plant in early spring and again in early July for a fall harvest.  Soil temperature should be 55-75˚ for best germination with seed planted 1/4” deep. Thin plants when they are 1” high to 8” apart.  Protect from hot weather by using shade cloth. Greens harvested in colder weather tend to be sweeter.
