Radicchio, Rossa di Verona Arca (Organic)
$3.50 – $36.00
Cichorium intybus. Round heading type. 75 days.
An outstanding selection of a solid heading radicchio with a 4-6” tall, elongated shape. Deep red/purple leaves with broad white mid-ribs are nice and crunchy with the tangy bitterness that radicchio is known for. We loved this variety for our winter CSA, as the tight wrapping on the heads meant that even when outer leaves were damaged from extreme cold, there was still a marketable head just a few leaves down. Also great harvested young as a loose head or for salad mix as cut-and-come-again greens.
