Chicory Palla Rossa

Price: $ 3.90

Chicorium intybus

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.
