Chicories are found in southern areas of B.C. including the Kootenays, Okanagan, Thompson, Mainland, Vancouver Island, and Cariboo.


Chicories are closely related to lettuces, but heartier and with a bitter edge. They’re best enjoyed sauteed, braised, and roasted.

Most Common Varieties:

  • Rosa del Veneto
  • Puntarelle
  • Belgian Endive
  • Escarole
  • Dandelion

Did you know?

  • Chicories are cooler weather crops and are best in the late winter through early spring, and then again in the fall.
  • Chicories maintain their shape and texture while cooked.
  • Cheese, sweet citruses, and beets pair well with the bitter taste of chicories.
