Endive Romanesca Da Taglio - Bishy Barnabees Cottage Garden

Product Details

Description

Endive is now gaining a large following as it has a slightly more biting flavour than lettuce. Roman cutting endive with thin, jagged upright leaves that grow in small bunches. This is a very easy variety to grow and use and it has a long sowing season. Don't be tempted to sow them in the spring along with your other lettuces, you won't get very good results. It's endive, not lettuce, even if it looks more like lettuce. They need heat initially to germinate and start their journey, and then cold to develop. Most varieties are very hardy and will tolerate sub-zero. There are several varieties of escarole and endive; the open-headed ones should be tied up about seven to ten days before harvest to blanch the heart and make them tender. Or you can just stick a bucket on top and, when you harvest that head, move the bucket to the next one. Be lazy – use an elastic band. Be even lazier and plant them closer than the standard 20 cm apart, so they all bunch up and blanch themselves.

Plant Care Tips

Sow under glass into pots or trays or modules and cover with a light sprinkling of vermiculite
Keep at a temperature of 15-20° until germinated
