Notes & Growing Tips: Endive is fairly easy to grow. Expose to light on day four. It can be grown past the microgreens stage and can be harvested any time after 10 days. if you are planning on allowing the endive to grow past the microgreens stage, we recommend planting in soil instead of growing hydroponically. If growing hydropoinically, it will be a challenge to get to day 15. Endive microgreens are short, so harvest close to the root line and rinse well.
Endive is a pleasant light green color and has a slight bitter taste that makes a nice contrast to strong flavors like sweet, salt and spice. It works well in place of lettuce on sandwiches and as a flavor contrast in microgreens salads.
***Note: Although we have indicated the specific medium that this particular seed prefers, you can still experiment with either soil or hydroponic mediums. Results may vary.
