We've been wanting to have an endive (one of Nate's favorite vegetables) in the catalogue for a while, and we're thrilled to be offering this new breeding mix via Wild Garden Seeds in Oregon. From Frank Morton's description: "A bit of a roundabout way to end up with an endive mix, but this comes out of the Chicendive project, originally a cross of chicory by endive. This mixed population of endivish forms varies in leaf shape from the finest frisée to robust endive. I expect to see a wide range of low temperature tolerances, leaf textures, and head sizes. For the intrepid salad grower or on-farm plant explorer. This species is self pollinating, and this population is advanced enough, so a grower who keeps seed from a favorite plant can expect similar offspring that will (with repeated selection) shortly lead to a stable variety.
