Finely cut and narrow lacy leaves are used extensively in gourmet salad blends for its texture, appearance and unique nutty flavor. It is rich in many vitamins and minerals, especially in folate and vitamins A and K, and is high in fiber.
As part of the chicory family, endives and escaroles are grown in a similar manner.
Cichorium is a robust, lettuce-like leafy herb indigenous to the Mediterranean region and has been developed into three distinct forms.
Use like other greens; fresh in a green salad, sauteed, or chopped and added into soups and stews.
For the most tender and flavorful leaves, plant either early or late in the season to avoid the hot season.

I had excellent germination (100%) with my Frisee Endive. I'm looking forward to continue growth under my grow lights!
Never would we have believed that this would be so successful in a Chicagoland summer with fluctuating (and extreme) temperatures and rainfall. Looks exactly like your photo. Delicious. We’ll recommend and order again! Thanks!
