Wild chicory

Cichorium intybus
HOW TO GROW CHICORY

When being grown for perennial roots, directly sow in June or May then thin all summer. When grown for edible leaves, direct sow in April for a summer crop or June and July for a winter crop. Deep taproot loosens compacted soils. Soils rich in available phosphorous are desirable, since phosphorous is essential to early plant development. Most chicories will survive winter temperatures between 20 and 25˚F. Soil pH 5.2–6.2. Hardiness zones 4-8. Perennial.

Days from maturity calculated from the date of seeding. Average 14,300 seeds per ounce. Federal germination standard: 65%. Usual seed life: 8 years.

Days to Germ. 10-15
Plant Spacing 10–12”
Row Spacing 18–24”
Days To Maturity 70-85
