Description

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.

Soil & Water: Radicchio does best in well drained, fertile, high organic matter soils with a pH of 5.0-6.8. Water moderately.
