(C. endivia) Named after our hometown, Bellingham, WA, “Bellesque” is a fall heading frisée type endive with densely packed frilly green leaves and blanched hearts. We love it for its playful texture and lightly bitter, lightly sweet crunch. When you hear the term “loft” in reference to salad, the sought after textural quality of airiness and spring, this is exactly what they are talking about. Lots of curves and crevices to catch dressing and keep you salad light. Best late summer-sown for heads can be sown all season for baby cuts. Cold hardy selection bred by our friend John Navazio when he lived here on the shores of the Puget Sound. An excellent production variety.
