Frisee Endive (60 Days)

1 review

Bushy heads of finely dissected, curly narrow leaves are used raw in salad mixes, adding a slight bitter flavor or prepare wilted or sauteed for more mellow taste. Blanch the center heart by tying the head up, 5 -7 days before harvesting to create a creamy color, delicate texture and flavor. Plant in early spring or fall- best when matured in cooler weather.
