*Capriccio is offered as part of the “Gusto Italiano Project“, a collaborative partnership. Certified organic seed grown in Italy by Smarties.Bio.

There is a saying in Italy “Per ogni riccio un capriccio” (“For each curl, a whim”). A properly blanched core of curly endive is thing of beauty and a joy on the salad plate. Frilly golden frisee leaves add visual whim, just the right amount of mild, refreshing bitterness, and endless curls and twists to keep the dressing up in the salad where it belongs instead of left behind on the plate

Capriccio provides a very uniform habit and impressive dense heads with big cores for blanching. An excellent production variety with good bolt resistance, well adapted to a variety of planting dates including long-day periods

Germination requires 30% oversowing. (70-75% Germination rate)
