    • 85 days. 
    • Classic Italian radicchio. Easy to grow, upright, compact weather resistant. 
    • Sow in July for winter crop. Burgundy red color on long, pointed foliage does not develop until cold weather sets in.
    • First leaves are mottled green, followed by lovely crimson white veined heads. 
    • I like planting these in a container and then adding pink tulips.

    Planting Directions Plant in early spring and again in early July for a fall harvest.  Soil temperature should be 55°-75° for best germination with seed planted 1/4” deep. Thin plants when they are 1” high to 8” apart.  Protect from hot weather by using shade cloth. Greens harvested in colder weather tend to be sweeter.
