When to Plant:

  • For best results, start indoors as early as 8-10 weeks in small pots or egg cartons and place them in a greenhouse or a warm, moist environment.
  • Sow outdoors 4-6 weeks before your anticipated final frost date in the Spring.
  • The goal is to harvest before daytime temperatures exceed 85 degrees F, and the plant is ready to harvest generally 80-90 days after they’re sown.

How to Grow:

  • If starting inside, transfer to your garden after the danger of frost has passed, and plant 6 inches apart.
  • If sowing outdoors or when transferring, plant in well-draining loose soil. Full sun is preferred, but endive will tolerate some shade.
  • keep area moist and evenly watered to promote faster growth. A lack of water will cause leaves to become bitter.
  • You can add aged compost to planting area before sowing and side dress plants with compost midseason.

When to Harvest:

  • Harvest 80-90 days after planting, when leaves are about 5 – 6 inches tall.
  • Cut right above soil level for continuous harvest.
  • If harvesting in the fall, make sure to harvest before any frost, or else your endive crop will be ruined.
  • Endive can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. You can freeze, can, or dry the leaves.
