For sweetest flavor, time your planting so plants mature in cool weather. Sow in moist, rich soil in early spring and again in fall/winter in mild climates.
For more tender leaves, tie the outer leaves to cover the inner leaves to blanch them while growing.
Endive, or escarole, is a type of chicory. Its crunchy texture and sweet yet mildly bitter flavor combination makes it a delightful addition to salads.
