Chicory Palla Rossa
Bright red medium sized radicchio well wrapped with numerous leaves and crisp ribs. Classic slightly bitter taste imparts a great bite to salads, and the colour, which is a brighter red in cool weather, looks great too. Bitterness can be removed by cooking. Also use the thick leaves as a disposable plate! After cutting the main head, cover the stump with straw and new white (witloof-style) heads will form. Space plants 30cm apart. Prefers cooler weather. Punnet of 6 plants.
