california endive production shortage
As of August 24, please be aware that California Endive Farms is experiencing a severe production shortage from their white endive roots. The roots are only producing at about 25-35% of normal volume. Endive roots are grown in the summer months and harvested in the fall/winter, then stored at freezing temperatures until they are thawed and finished growing into endive. The roots that are currently being grown into endive were harvested in January. California Endive will begin to harvest their new crop roots in mid-September and hope to be back to full production by mid-October. Production of red and coraline roots are expected to remain steady throughout the shortage of white. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause and will update you when supplies increase.
