Frisee is bright to light green at its leaf tips fading to a pale yellow at its core. The lacy green leaves offer a slightly bitter flavor and tender texture. 

The gradient coloring is a result of a common growing process used in Frisee production where greens are shielded from light for a period of time during growth.  

FLAVOR PROFILE: The yellow center has a subtle crunch and offers a much milder flavor than the leaf tips. 

Frisee is most often used raw in fresh applications though it can also be wilted or sautéed to mellow its bitterness. Utilize Frisee to add texture and crunch to leafy green, stacked and lightly chopped salads. Frisee is a hardy green and will maintain its texture when paired with warm ingredients making it ideal as part of a salad bed for grilled steak, salmon and chicken. The bitter flavor of Frisee marries well with sweet, sour and salty accompaniments such as orange segments, pomegranate seeds, pears, bacon lardons, garlic, anchovies, poached egg, toasted walnuts, balsamic vinegar and robust creamy cheeses such as blue and goat.

NUTRITION: A green leafy vegetable, Frisee is packed with nutrients, and very low in calories. It is an excellent source of folic acid, vitamin A and vitamin C, with approximately one third the daily recommended amount of each, in a single serving. Frisee lettuce is also a good source of vitamin K, and manganese. 

HANDLING: Our hydroponic LIVING lettuce is delivered to you with the roots still attached.  That means it is still living with the nutrients at their peak. If the root ball it kept moist, you’ll get an extended shelf life of up to 2 weeks in refrigeration.
