De Meaux Endive
The best frisee for spring and summer planting. A fast-growing and easy salad green that adds gives mixed salads a great texture and flavor. The frilly leaves keep flat lettuce leaves from all sticking together, and allows the dressing to coat your salad evenly. These slightly bitter endives--not as bitter as beer, never mind coffee--are also extremely good for your liver, and have been eaten with pork and other hard-to-digest foods in Italy for generations. Give shade in hot weather. The name is pronounced mow, like cutting the lawn. Try it. 200 seeds.
