Endive Seeds Green Curled Ruffe (Heirloom)
An heirloom also introduced in the 1860's. Endive is a member of the chicory family that originated in the Mediterranean region. Its a delicious long season green that is sweet in the cool weather and slight bitter in the warmer weather. The leaves hold dressings well. I love the texture of this leaf in my salads. Snails and slugs take little interest to it. Any easy to grow must have for a greens garden. 75-85 days to maturity. Plant 6-12 inches apart based on how your are going to harvest. For larger full head harvest plant 12 inches apart.
A teaspoon of Green Curled Ruffe Endive Seeds. That is the easiest way for me to measure.
For planting instructions I direct everyone to the Farmer's Almanac. They are clear and concise and cover all care needs. You can find a link under the Blog & Video tab.
