'Endive' is a type of Escarole
Plant in the early spring a few weeks before the last frost date through mid June. Successive plantings will extend the harvest period. Plant seeds ½ deep in rows about a foot apart; thin to 8 inches. To reduce bitterness you can pull the outer leaves together and tie them in a bundle for 2-3 weeks. Harvest when leaves are about 5-6 inches high.
Look for brightly colored leaves and no sign of wilting. Wrap escarole/endive in a paper towel and put in a bag/container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
Wash under cold water, remove any damaged leaves and cut off base of stem and pat dry. Use raw in salads as you would other greens or use as an ingredient in soups/stew or other recipes.
