Chicory is member of the same species as radicchio and escarole. It is also called endives. Chicory is a leaf vegetable which is grown in the dark. Much attention is paid to the biannual growing of chicory. During the first year outside soil growing of the roots is done, which in the autumn are harvested and cooled. Afterwards the roots must grow new leaves, the chicory. This process of chicory development takes place on running water. In 3 to 4 weeks, the chicory crop grows. The cut off (broken) crop can be eaten raw or cooked.
