* Required Fields



Orchidea Rossa Radicchio is a beautiful red chicory that is early to harvest and features attractive semi-open rosette-shaped heads. Cooler temperatures intensify the deep red coloring so this crop is best suited for spring and fall plantings outside the perimeter of the summer heat. This Italian gourmet type is also excellent as a baby leaf for a consistent cut-and-come-again harvest. Great for winter gardens in cooler climates as this variety is cold tolerant and the flavor becomes sweeter with frost exposure. 75 days. Packet: 100 seeds.
