Endive - Batavian - Cichorium endiva

Biennial Also called escarole, Batavian endive's large, broad, slightly twisted, lettuce-like leaves form round, tight-packed heads. They are well-blanched, with creamy-white deep hearts, and a bulky texture. The leaves are slightly bitter. Endive is delicious raw in salads, braised or steamed.

Soil & Water: Endive tolerates acidic soils with a pH of 5.5-7.0. Nutritional and watering requirements are moderate. Grow in similar soils as lettuce or cole crops.

Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 8 weeks before the last frost, or sow seed directly outdoors every 2 weeks from spring to early summer and late summer to fall. Endive may overwinter outdoors in mild winter climates.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest leaves as needed when they are a usable size, or harvest the whole plant. Endive is best used fresh; it does not store well. Fall plants harvested after a few frosts are sweeter than their spring counterparts. To blanch, pull up and tie the outer leaves 3 weeks before harvesting.

Did You Know? Endive is extremely high in vitamin A, and rich in vitamin C, calcium, and iron.
