Red Dandelion Chicory Seeds

This chicory is also known as ‘Italiko Rosso’. A very tasty Italian heirloom that has attractive dark green leaves and vibrant red stems that rise through the mid leaf.

The Red Dandelion is a mildly bitter chicory with a spicy flavour. A quick growing variety that is cold tolerant – a great choice for the cooler climates. Just harvest the leaves when you need them. Great for pots and smaller spaces.

Health & Culinary Notes

  • Excellent flavour.  Add a vibrant colour to your salads with freshly picked young leaves.
  • Blanch older leaves to remove any bitterness. Perfect as a side for any meal.
  • Steamed, grilled and stir fried leaves retain their beautiful dark green colour.
  • Loaded with iron, vitamins C and K.
