Think of this endive as a green cousin of the radicchio plant. It actually looks a lot like romaine lettuce as it grows. Seeds produce nice compact heads similar to romaine. Both sweet and crunch addition to salads. It does have a blanched center which makes it eye appealing. And very cold tolerant. It is actually a true chicory.

How to Save Seeds

Keep other chicories separate from one another by at least 500 ft and keep separate from endive too. Saving sugarloaf endive seeds is a simple process that can be done in three easy steps. First, allow the endive plant to fully mature and form seed heads. Second, cut the seed heads off the plant and place them in a paper bag. Third, hang the bag in a cool, dry place for about a week to allow the seeds to dry completely. When the seeds are fully dried, you can remove them from the seed heads by hand or by gently crushing the heads. It is important to store the seeds in a cool, dry place to prevent them from becoming moldy or damaged. You can store them in an airtight container or an envelope, and make sure to label them with the date and variety of endive.
