The Tres Fine Maraichere Olesh is an old French heirloom frisée endive that is tres fine! This variety forms a heart of finely cut, frilly leaves that are mildly bitter, and deliciously crispy in gourmet salad mixes. Tie the heads closed one week before harvest to blanch the center to a creamy white color. Tres Fine Maraichere Olesh does best in spring or fall under cooler conditions.
The Salad King Endive lives up to its name, as it is the king of salads! It is a beautiful endive with vigorous and uniform growth. This variety's long, curled and deeply cut leaves have a dark green blade and pale green midrib. The Salad King Endive grows more spreading and is very slow bolting in hot weather while withstanding fall rains and light frost as well.
