Organic Escarole

Organic Escarole


Also known as broad-leaved endive, Bavarian endive, Batavian endive, and scarole, escarole has broad, curly green leaves, and a slightly bitter. The outer leaves tend to be darker in color and more bitter, while the inner leaves are more tender. The chicory is often bunched and placed with heads of fresh lettuce, away from its close relatives radicchio and endive. It's more expensive than lettuce since it is considered a specialty item. This vegetable requires little preparation before using, often only needing a quick rinse.
