Felix | Catalogna Gigante di Chioggia Chicory Seed

$5.00$141.00 AUD excl gst

*This seed is offered as part of the “Gusto Italiano Project”, a collaborative partnership. Organically grown seed bred in Italy by Smarties.Bio

Felix (ex #SM4.32) shines as a looseleaf braising/sauteing green

Often sold as “dandelion greens” the Catalogna Gigante di Chioggia ideotype have long slender serrated leaves with nice substantial and succulent stems adding some sweetness to the leaf’s pleasing bitterness. Felix’s leaf stems can even be ribboned and used similar to puntarelle (which is a specialty subset of the Catalogna type). Easier to grow than many of the heading radicchio types

As with all chicory, be especially mindful of your planting dates as a successful crop requires a much narrower planting window than most garden vegetables
