A variety of endive. Its often found in mixes of leaf lettuces. It has a somewhat bitter flavor. It is good source of vitamin A, vitamin C and iron. Escarole is very pretty with wirey leaves and adds a bit of visual texture to salads.

Escarole does not keep for very long. It should be kept at about 35-40 degrees with a high relative humidity.
