Green Curled Ruffec Endive Seeds


This addition to your garden is well composed like a ballad

Deeply cut greens bring drama to your salad.

But wait! Before you get out the ranch

I'll tell you how to get the leaves to blanch.

Tie up outer leaves 2 weeks before harvest 

Making sure they're dry, this move is the smartest

Then just wait, this part is the hardest

But once done, they'll be yellowed right where the heart is.


Now before you pluck from the ground, one more thing you should know

Cut at 2" above the soil and nothing below

No need to get out more seed to sow

This cut allows the plant to regrow.

Depth 1/2"
Spacing 12” apart
Germ 6-10 days
Maturity ~90 Days

92% Germination rate November 2021
