Chicory is just one of the members of the endive family, which also includes escarole, radicchio, and frisée. Like its relatives, the endive boasts a crisp texture and pleasant bitterness that can add a lovely, fresh flavour to salads and recipes of all kinds.
Endives are a cool-season crop that will bolt easily and grow increasingly bitter in high temperatures. While it is best known in Europe, we believe that endives deserve a place at tables around the world. So, why not grow your own this year?
