Castelfranco Radicchio is a visually stunning, old Italian gourmet heirloom variety that features beautiful variegated closed crunchy heads. The light lime-cream leaves are splashed with wine colored speckles. It is wildly popular among culinary creators for its gorgeous appearance and pleasing flavor when blended into salads. Ideally grown in the fall, this variety prefers shorter days and cooler temperatures in order to head up and produce exceptional coloration. To grow in the spring, start early for transplants to get ahead of the warmer summer months. An excellent choice for home gardeners who love to cook and a "must grow" variety for fresh market and restaurant producers who truly want to stand out in terms of growing exceptional varieties with eye-catching color. 75 days. Packet: 100 seeds.
