Frisée Endive
Cichorium endivia

75 days — Also known as 'Frisee' or 'Curly' endive. Produces loose heads of frilly, finely cut leaves. Used mostly as a salad green, the lacy leaves have a distinctive, slightly bitter taste. Can be blanched by tying the heads with string or a rubber band, which causes the taste to be milder.

Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 450 seeds.

Planting Instructions: Endive is generally very easy to grow. You can start indoors or plant directly in the garden. Good results are had by planting in beds, ¼ inch deep, covered with light soil, one to two inches apart. Thin to six to eight inches apart

Once the plants are mature, tie the leaves together to blanch the heart.

If you plan to save seed, care should be taken to ensure that Endive and Chicory are not in close proximity (at least 500 feet) as cross-pollination will occur. Endive will tolerate light frosts.
