How to take care of Endive Batavian No. 5
Endive is a short-lived perennial that tolerates acidic soils. Grow in similar soils as lettuce. Start seeds indoors 8 weeks before the last frost, or sow seed directly outdoors every 2 weeks from mid summer and late summer to fall. Endive may overwinter outdoors in mild winter climates. Harvest leaves as needed when they are a usable size, or harvest the whole plant. Endive is best used fresh; it does not store well.
Days To Maturity: 75 -80 Days
