Castelfranco Chicory
Cichorium intybus

85 to 95 days — Synonyms are 'Variegata Di Castelfranco', 'Radicchio Castelfranco', and 'Castelfranco Variegata.' This variety is an old Italian radicchio-type chicory.  Produces loose heads that grow up to four inches in diameter and do not need to be cut-back to produce like many other chicory varieties.  The leaves are rounded, ruffled, tender, and have a slightly bitter taste.  Foliage is light-green to cream in color and variegated with red spots and stripes, which gives each head an almost floral appearance.

Best sown in early spring for use as baby greens, or in mid-to-late summer for an autumn harvest of mature heads.  Requires protection from the Sun for best results.  Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 450 seeds.
