From Territorial Seed: “75 days. This Tres Fin type endive flaunts dense heads of finely cut, succulent leaves. The frost-hardy plants reach 5 inches tall and a broad, 13 inches across with emerald leaves that blanch to a creamy heart. The full-bodied leaves offer excellent texture and a sweet-touched-with-bitter flavor to round out more mildly flavored greens in winter salads. The crop has very good field-holding capacity and remains less bitter than other endives in its class.” Photo also courtesy of Territorial Seed.
Care: Plant 10-16″ apart in rows 16-18″ apart in sun. Harvest heads as soon as mature for best flavor.
Cold-tolerant plants that stand in the field for harvest as needed in late fall and early winter. May overwinter in mild seasons, or die back and sprout from the root in spring for an extra-early crop. See our Fall & Winter Vegetable Guide for specific planting/harvest times & freeze-out temperatures.
