Chicory witloof experimental varieties

The Hoquet breeding team is constantly working to improve the existing chicory witloof (Belgian endive) varieties. Increasingly, the emphasis lies on characteristics such as quality and shelf life. The hybrids listed below are currently undergoing internal testing. Some seed is sometimes available for practical use so that these chicory witloof varieties can undergo further small-scale experimental testing by chicory forcers. Over the next few years, these hybrids may develop into fully-fledged varieties suitable for cultivation. If you are looking for the red chicory types, there is just the variety Céralie at this moment. You can find the red chicory Ceralie under “early season” varieties. If you are interested in seed or roots for testing one of the experimental chicory witloof varieties below, feel free to contact us.
