Rossa Di Verona Radicchio Seeds


Rossa di Verona Radicchio has deep red, heart shaped leaves wrapped tightly around one another to form a solid, round head. Sow Rossa di Verona Radicchio seeds indoors in late spring and transplant into the garden in late summer for fall harvest.


Cut off all the leaves above the crown in early fall. It's the resulting new growth in cold weather that produces the characteristic small, compact, cabbage-like head. They can even be overwintered for spring harvest. 


A favorite way to enjoy radicchio is grilled and roasted with olive oil and your choice of spices. While it can be enjoyed raw in salad, its natural bitter taste can be overpowering, use sparingly.
