Radicchio 'Variegata di Castelfranco'

*Heirloom*
The Veneto region of northeast Italy is rich with diversity in the chicory family. Despite its limited following here, this family is one of THE prized agricultural crops and identities of the region with entire festivals dedicated to the humble greens. Many of the varieties (Variegata di Castelfranco, Radicchio di Treviso) are simply named after the towns where their production is centered. Castelfranco is sown mid summer for harvest beginning in December and lasting well into winter. Initially big, somewhat homely late summer heads fill in with a more tender inner growth in the late fall. The resulting partially blanched apple green flecked with wine red inner heads are perhaps the most beautiful green we’ve seen. Delicious, tender, and very hardy these are a must for any serious winter garden. Please grow this.
