This is the fine frisee that is in gourmet salad blends. Blend it with others or make a special salad with it all alone, decadent. You can harvest leaves like cut and come again, or the whole head. For serious salad growers this is a must have!

Winter greens

As with the Endive Ruffec, I always grow this one for fall/winter greens in my greenhouse. I keep the greenhouse just above freezing and have delicious greens all winter.
