Bellesque Frisee




A cool-season salad green with excellent loft, crisp texture and full flavor. Can be grown as a baby green but also forms beautiful, large heads with green frilly leaves and blanched hearts. Gains a bit of sweetness with cool temperatures, especially after a light frost. Named for Bellingham, WA, where John Navazio selected this variety for cold-hardiness. A staple in our fall CSA and a key ingredient for lyonnaise salad.
