As winter frosts threaten tender growth, turn to exotic PASSIONFRUITS for colour and sturdy CHICORY and SHALLOTS for crunch



Grown in the dark, its vibrant white tips and slightly bitter flavour pep up less wellendowed leaves, tossed in a winter salad.

Nutritional reasons to buy

This leafy veg, also known as endive, is delicious eaten raw in salads, sliced and added to stir-fries or halved and griddled. Available in red and yellow, it’s the red variety that’s particularly rich in anthocyanins. These naturally occurring antioxidants give the leaves their deep hue and have been linked to better heart health, as well as protecting against certain cancers and cognitive decline. More research is needed to confirm the health benefits of anthocyanins but, regardless, all chicory counts towards your five-a-day.
