 Feed in Moderation
  • Common Name: Endive (Belgium Endive, Chicory)
  • Latin Name: Chicorum endivia
  • Family Name: Asteracaea/Compositae
Endive is a leaf vegetable which is either cooked or used as a salad plant.  It has a bitter taste but may be fed as part of a varied diet.  There is much confusion about the different terms for this plant, which include Radicchio and  Frisée lettuce.

Do not confuse with Wild Chicory, which is a different species.
