A round, red ball type radicchio from Chioggia, Italy. It has a fresh, deep red color, with pure white veins on a uniform, compact and vigorous head. The external green leaves protect the round head of the plant, giving resistance to low temperatures and frost. Red and white coloring become more intense the colder the weather. Radicchio is an excellent addition to any salad. Highly used in fine restaurants and commonly sold in gourmet food markets. Radicchio gets most of its fame for being an ingredient in the popular tri color salad.
