Endive & Escarole Seeds

Endive and escarole are easy to grow and complement lettuce, spinach and other greens at farm markets and roadside stands.

Growing Tips:
Endive is a curly-leaf green used as a substitute for, or in combination with, lettuces and spinach. The broad-leaf variety is known as Escarole. To keep from becoming bitter, leaves can be blanched 2-3 weeks before harvesting by gathering and tying outer leaves. (Note: make sure leaves are dry when tying to prevent rotting.)

Fresh Market Grower Tips:
Endive and Escarole are easy to grow and make a good complement to lettuce, spinach and other greens at farmers’ markets. Mixed greens are a popular item with consumers today, and endive and escarole will add a special touch to these mixed greens blends.
