Endive, Capellina (Organic)
Cichorium endivia. 55-65 days.
The unique, fine, pointy leaves of Capellina set it apart from other frisée endives. Large mounds of frilly pointy craziness. Much hardier than other frisée types. Good flavor raw for salad mixes. Best as a spring, fall or winter harvest as it may get tip burn in the summer heat. All endives benefit from row cover protection in very cold weather. A little slower growing, which probably helps it with cold tolerance, as it produces less frost-tender growth. Sometimes referred to as Riccia Fine d’Inverno (Capellina), because it’s a re-selection of an older winter endive.
