Markant Wallone endive seeds produce a very good, large framed Wallone type endive with voluminous curled long and upright outer leaves and a heart that blanches well. Markant deals remarkably well with the cool and darker conditions in the late season and winter. And its flavour benefits from being slightly cooked. Chop some into a pasta sauce, or use it to top a pizza. Another delicious way is to create a hot oil salad dressing to pour over the endive just before serving. This helps remove the slightly bitter taste and brings out a mild sweetness that balances perfectly with other vegetables.
