Scarola (Cichorium endivia var. latifolium)

  • Scarola (Cichorium endivia var. Latifolium): variety of endive with smooth leaves, short stem, and compact heart. To facilitate the bleaching of this part of the head, also known as grumolo/core, sometimes the heads are tied up about two weeks before harvesting. It is sown from spring and throughout the whole summer to be harvested from autumn to the end of winter, depending on the weather. The escarole is the most important of the Endives thanks to its organoleptic characteristics and versatility in cultivation.
