Endive - Catalogna Emerald - Cichorium endivia - Heirloom Vegetable - 100 Seeds
An early salad green with fast-growing dandelion-like leaves. Loose rosettes of deeply-cut, long, broad leaves grow upright to 10". Often used raw to add zip to salad and mesclun mixes, this gorgeous emerald green endive imparts a slightly bitter, asparagus-like flavor. Grow fast like lettuce in cool weather to avoid tough, very bitter leaves. Can be picked as baby leaves in 30 days, or later in 50 days.
