Radicchio - Rouge de Verona - Cichorium endiva
Hardy Biennial Rouge de Verona is a classic Italian radicchio in the chicory family. This is a Verona type, originally hailing from that region of Italy. Nicely bitter and spicy leaves become sweeter when cooked; a favorite Italian method is grilling this with olive oil. Raddicchio is a type of chicory so you can roast the roots and add the roots to coffee for a flavorful hot beverage.
