Castelfranco Radicchio
(Italian Chicory)

Cichorium intybus

85 to 95 days — Synonyms are 'Variegata Di Castelfranco', 'Radicchio Castelfranco', and 'Castelfranco Variegata.'  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. 

Radicchio (pronounced rah-dee-key-oh) is a leaf-type chicory that is sometimes known as Italian chicory. Grown as a leaf vegetable, it has a bitter and spicy taste which tends to mellow after being roasted or grilled.  In Italy, is is popular grilled in olive oil and served.Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 450 seeds.
