Description

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.

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

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.
