CULTURAL INFO:
Members of the chicory family, endives and escaroles are hardy biennials that prefer cool temperatures and short days. Plants are tolerant to heat as well as cold and are grown like lettuce. Endives have frilly and serrated leaves, while Escaroles have broad leaves and Catalogna endives (dandelion greens) are long and thin with softly serrated edges. Start transplants 6-8 weeks before planting date. Plant heads closer together for self-blanching technique or cover centers for 3 days before harvest. Harvest as you would lettuce. Light frosts in fall will improve flavor.
