Description

Endive - Frisee - Cichorium endivia var. crispum

Biennial A bushy, leafy green in the Chicory family, this endive has pale, greenish-yellow, curly leaves with a mild, slightly-bitter flavor for eating fresh or cooked, and as an accent in salads. Endive is native to India, but is widely cultivated in Europe and United States.

Did You Know? Endive has been cultivated since the days of the Greco-Roman empire and even today is often used in Italy as an ingredient in "wedding soup".

Soil and Water: Endive thrives in loose, well-drained moist soil with a pH of 5.5-7.0. Water moderately watering.

Planting and Growing: Start indoors 6-8 weeks ahead of last frost or plant outdoors every 2 weeks after last frost when soil temperature exceeds 55°F, and again in late summer to fall. Protect from slugs. Works well as succession-sown crop, gradually thin to 12" apart.

Harvesting and Storage: Harvest whole heads, wash and eat fresh as a dipper or in salads, or braise, broil, bake, grill or sauté. Can be refrigerated for up to 3 days. For paler (blanched) leaves, pull up and tie outer leaves 3 weeks before harvest.
