Generally available all year from the USA and Mexico. Also known as curly endive or chicory. Store between 32-34 degrees F in a plastic lined box. Mist as needed to preserve crispness, and keep wrapped tightly in the plastic liner. A tightly compacted head of outer green leaves surrounds the tender, butter colored inner leaves. You may request Frisee that is more blanched within, or less. Please specify your preference when ordering. Approximately 2-4 heads per pound. Delicate and subtly bitter (as most chicories are), flavors make this an excellent salad additive. Combine with hot bacon, poached eggs and croutons, for a sensational salad.
