Growing chicory

Chicory root is essentially grown in northern France: chicory fields are located around the towns of Calais, Dunkirk and Saint-Omer.

The same farmers grow chicory every year with a crop rotation at least every 3 years.

Chicory cultivation is highly specialised. Seeds are small and fragile and seeding takes place in the spring (late March – early April) when soil temperatures begin to increase. Harvesting begins in October.

To obtain a healthy harvest, ideal weather conditions during seeding are essential.
