Prolific seeds, mild tasting green that is great for salads and juicing, braises, mincing for soups or rice. I grew it during fall 2013 and planted more in February 2014. Great inter-cropping crop, to shade the soil, conserve water. I live in the high desert (3500 ft) of southern California and the cool months are October through March. I have built raised bed planters and enclosed them with 1/4" hardware cloth and 50% Aluminet shade cloth, so it is cooler than being open to the sun. We'll see how long into the heat I can grow it :-) Paradise Farm, California

Excellent endive, we use it in soup and fry it with olive oil, garlic and crushed red peppers. It is very easy to grow. Actually I usually end up planting too much and can't get it all before it warms up. Like all lettuce and greens turns bitter once it gets too hot and too much sun.
