"Bianca di Milano" leaf endive may be grown under covers all year long. This vegetable is still rather unknown in many parts of Europe and cultivated on rather small scale. It may be grown all year long in greenhouses and harvested in winter, when fresh vegetables supply is limited, too.
"Bianca di Milan" is a medium early variety. It develops elongated, compact heads consisting of densely packed leaves. Leaf blades are pale green with distinctly visible white venation.
Leaf endive may be consumed raw or cooked. It will provide your body with plenty of vitamins and minerals.
Seeds of the "Bianca di Milano" endive available in our online store should be sown in spring directly to the ground or at the site where they are supposed to grow. This vegetable does not have any particular requirements in regard to nutrients and water. However, it grows best in fertile soils with neutral reaction that are rich in humus. Low temperatures do not harm it, but it causes endive to produce flowering stalks. You may harvest nicely shaped heads from August to October.
