Often confused with the “cousin” chicory (both belong to the same genus Cichorium), endive develops a rosette of very choppy leaves which form a rather loose head. The bleaching of the leaves is carried out by collecting and binding them with a piece of raffia. The Belgian variety, Belgian Endive, is in the shape of a large cream-colored cigar because it grows in the dark; this technique allows the leaves to remain white and more tender.
