Belgian endive, also called French endive or witloof, is a small, cylindrical head of pale, tightly packed leaves. Curly endive, sometimes mistakenly called chicory, has lacy, green-rimmed and curly leaves, with a prickly texture and slightly bitter taste. Escarole has broad, slightly curved, pale green leaves with a milder flavor than either Belgian or curly endive.
