Endive, Bellesque (Organic)
Cichorium endivia. 55-65 days.
This is a great dual-purpose frisée type for baby leaf greens when young and full heads when older. Long, frilly green leaves have a crunchy white midrib and great texture. Flavor provides mild sweetness and mild bitterness at the same time which makes it a joy to eat for those of us that love endive. Bellesque was bred by none other than John Navazio, selected for cold tolerance (fall/spring production) in the area around Bellingham, Washington, for which the variety is named.
