Très Fine Maraîchère Frisee Endive

60 days. This petite, delightfully frizzy Endive (Frisée) gives an amazing loft to salad partners and frilly heads of “TFM” are perfect for the kitchen garden. Positively voluminous, the self-blanching rosette of deeply cut, slender outer leaves surrounds a tender, creamy heart. TFM grows easily and quickly, attracts almost no pests, resists bolting and makes cute baby greens! To savor the nutty flavor of TFM, treat yourself to this unforgettable antipasto: dress torn leaves lightly with a simple balsamic vinegar and olive oil vinaigrette. Top with halved fresh figs and thinly-sliced prosciutto. (OP.)

  • Information
  • This ancient family includes popular "continental" greens, most preferring cool weather and evenly moist soil. You may sow in the spring as soon as the soil can be worked, when the soil is about 45F degrees. However, late summer sowing for fall and winter harvest may be more successful. Wild at heart, most Chicories prefer to be direct-sown in moderately fertile soil; too much added fertilizer, especially nitrogen, can cause them to bolt. With all varieties, keep soil lightly moist until seedlings emerge. Chicories have varying degrees of bitter flavor and their dense texture adds desirable dimension to salads.To broaden the range of texture and flavor in your garden and salads, don t forget to plant some of these specialty Salad Greens: Arugula, Asian Greens, Chervil, Claytonia, Cress, Dandelion Greens, Endive, Escarole, Frisee, Giant Red Mustard, Komatsuna, Lettuce, Mache, Mibuna, Minutina, Mizuna, Orach, Radicchio, Salad Blends, Sorrel, Spinach, Swiss Chard, and Tatsoi. Deer resistant.

    Average seed life: 2 years.
