Details

Escarole is a slightly bitter green in the chicory family. It resembles lettuce, but packs plenty of vitamins and minerals, making it a great choice for the health conscious. Escarole prefers cooler temps, so grow it in early spring or late summer for fall harvests. The hearts, served with a warm dressing and caramelized walnuts and onions, make a delicious salad. Cooked escarole pairs nicely with beans for a warming fall soup. The flavor is best after frost.

Prefers cooler temperatures for germination and growth. Direct sow outdoors 4 weeks before last frost. Thin seedlings to 12 inch spacing to grow mature heads. Escarole does best in moderately fertile soil. Keep watered. Sow in intervals beginning in August for fall harvests. Escarole has the best flavor after frosts. Can also be grown as a baby green: direct sow seeds about 1 inch apart, then cut when leaves are 2-4 inches.
