Escarole, Verde Fiorentina (Organic)

Cichorium endivia. 60-70 days.

Reliable summer and winter escarole from Florence, Italy, with a unique strappy leaf shape that fills out into a classic escarole head. Crunchy and sweet, we find it able to withstand extreme temperature fluctuations better than other escaroles. Leaf shape makes this variety a good choice for salad mixes, as it is not as broad as most other escaroles. When left to attain jumbo size, the heads self-blanch their hearts for a more mild flavor and are sturdy enough for cooking. One of the best producers for our winter vegetable CSA.
