Cichorium endivia

Organic Broadleaf Batavian Endive
 (80 days)


batavian endive seed

Lettuce-like leaves are broad and slightly twisted.

Leaves form around 10-12" heads that are tightly packed with a well blanched, creamy heart. 

Makes an excellent garnish as well. 

***Like all members of the chicory family, endive has a bitter flavor, but the intensity of the bitterness varies depending on the cultivar and how it is handled.  Too much heat causes endive to be over bitter.  In hot regions it is best to plant endive early or late in the season when the days are cooler.

Planting Tips for Organic Heirloom Lettuce Seeds:

Sow directly into very fertile, loose soil.  Thin down to final spacing once plants are established.  For best results, plant in spring or fall.  Harvest outside leaves for a continual harvest.  For longer harvest, stagger plantings every 2-3 weeks.

Heat Tolerance:  If you are growing lettuce in the heat, plant them where they will get afternoon shade.  Lettuce is a spring and fall crop in really hot areas.

Harvest Tips: For a continual harvest, sow a new crop every 2-3 weeks if cutting full heads, otherwise harvesting outside leaves will encourage a longer harvest from individual plants.
