CERTIFIED ORGANIC! We love the flavour of this trés fine frisée endive as much as its amazing uniform growth. The green outer edges of the rosette have a mature, bitter flavour, and this matches perfectly with the succulent and sweet blanched interior leaves. The petioles are thick, with high moisture content, and have that wonderful taste that matches so well with hot oil dressings. Benefine Organic is compact and upright, with well-filled heads that are very bolt resistant. The plants are frost hardy for fall growing, but also do well in warm weather, with high resistance to tipburn.
Matures in 48 days. (Open-pollinated seeds)
