Possibly the only decent thing to come out of EEC Brussels - except Belgian chocolates!

This tried and trusted variety can be used as a 'baby leaf', eaten raw in salads or cooked in the normal way and will impart a mildly bitter-sweet flavour to any dish.

But where Brussels Witloof really comes into its own is when it is forced and blanched, producing tight heads of white leaves.

Chicory really is a worthwhile crop and, being tolerant of both poor soils and partial shade, excellent for the less productive parts of the garden

  • Sow thinly in ½" (1 cm) deep drills, 12" (30 cm) apart.
  • Thin to one plant per 10" (25 cm) when large enough to handle.
  • For Forcing
  • Lift the plants and cut off the foliage to approximately 1" (2.5 cm) above the roots; you can also trim back the roots at this point.
  • Now pot up into deep pots or containers of moist potting compost so that the tops are just showing - then cover with a further 6" - 9" (15 - 23 cm) of compost.
  • Take precautions against slugs!
  • Move the pots or containers to a warm dark place - and after 3 - 4 weeks the forced chicons should be ready for harvest.
  • After chicons have been cut, re-cover the stumps as you may get a second crop.
