Endive - Tres Fine - Cichorium endiva

Biennial Tres Fine is a quick growing miniature French endive with narrow, finely curled leaves, and cream-colored hearts. Its mild, slightly bitter taste adds just the right amount of texture and bite to salads.

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 soil 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.
