Help, my chicory roots stink?

Do you open the box of chicory roots and a 'smell' hits you? Don't panic!
These chicory roots have received a cold shock at the grower so the foliage may start to rot awaydue to the temperature difference. This is perfectly normal and can certainly do no harm. Do you still have doubts? Feel free to send us an email!



But how do you grow those delicious ground leaves yourself?

1. Digging in: Make a pit in soil and arrange the carrots all nicely next to each other.

2.Cover the carrots with a layer of soil of +/- 15cm. Use soil that is as poor as possible, and certainly no fertilizer! It is recommended to reuse the soil from your flower and plant containers, or mix peat into the soil (for a more acid soil).Chicory should not get any light, otherwise you grow chicory ;-).As an alternative to soil, you can also use hay, straw or black plastic. As long as no (sun) light reaches the roots...Do you grow in buckets? Then instead of 15cm of soil above the roots you can just place a bucket or black pot. As long as the chicory roots remain covered.

3. Water: The soil in which the chicory roots are placed must be moist. However, do not overdo it with your watering can because too much water is even harmful to the chicory.Do you grow in buckets? Then you can choose to put a bottle of water in the middle of the bucket upside down (where you cut out the bottom and fill the bottle with water = basically watering tomato plants in the greenhouse)

4. Wait... The warmer, the sooner you can harvest. Professional growers often use a heating element that brings the soil temperature to between 14° and 18°C. At such temperatures you will have chicory ready to eat after about three weeks. Do you not use these heat sources? Then you must wait several months, depending on the temperature.

5. Harvesting: Cut/break off the head.

6. Enjoying your homegrown ground chicory ;-)

You can also perfectly place the chicory in a large bucket, mason jar or specially made forceps. It is important to note, however, that you should not put the bucket in the kitchen or dining room because of the temperature. Are you growing at more than 18°C? Then the chicory will be forced too much, and you can get heads falling open. That would be a shame!
