About Chicory Seeds

Cichorium intybus

Seed Type Open Pollinated Seed
Also known as Blue Sailors, Blue Dandelion

Chicory is a very versatile plant that is equally cherished as a flower and as an herb. Chicory seeds can be planted in the most challenging of conditions, and actually tend to thrive in less-than-ideal soil. Though chicory is most famously used in teas, it has also traditionally been used to flavor coffees as well. Plant outdoors in a sunny spot with proper drainage.
