Another great breeding mix from the folks at Wild Garden Seeds. From Frank Morton's description: "This is a restart of our Wild Garden Chicory Mix, created by growing a mixture of 11 chicory varieties to seed together. This second incantation of the Wild Garden Chicory Mix is comprised of the original WGS population, the original Italian varieties, and the varietal hybrids, many of which are striking in form and pigmentation, all of them delicious and unique as an autumn/winter salad mix. Add chervil, chickweed, and cress, and you have the best holiday seasonal salad around. Farm Original Variety! OSSI (Open Source Seed Initiative) Pledged Variety."
