*Notes:

Witloof needs to be grown in two stages to produce pale blanched heads. Step 1: Grow like usual chicory, cut off leaf growth and harvest root. Step 2: Re-plant root and grow in dark, either by covering or growing indoors. Alternatively Witloof can be grown like regular chicory, however it will have an open habit with green leaves.
