Cultivation Advice Chicory Red – Rossa Di Treviso 4 (Early) Organic

  • Sow thinly 8-10mm deep under protection in very early February to April for earliest harvest in summer. Or best Jun to August outdoors to harvest Oct-Dec.
  • Can be sown under glass all year round for fresh ‘salad leaves’, but needs cold to develop red colour.
  • Keep weed free and well watered.
  • In late autumn when temperatures fall, the outer leaves will close together tightly to form heads and the colours will form and intensify.
