This salad green also known as escarole, produces large, broad leaves on plants up to 15in (38cm) across. The leaves are slightly twisted and have a sharper flavour and more substance than lettuce. Use mixed with other greens in salads, as cooked greens, and as a garnish. The tastiest crops are timed for harvest during the cool weather of autumn.
