Radicchio La Rosa del Veneto "Pink Chicory" Seeds

Radicchio La Rosa del Veneto
Vivid pink color white / pink stems. The best color is achieved when it matures in cool weather. Start seeds in mid- to late summer and transplant to the garden in early fall. Pink Radicchio takes about four months to mature. Space plants 8-12 inches apart in rows 12 inches apart. Like lettuce, radicchio has shallow roots, so keeping it well-watered and mulched is important. Supply 1-1.5 inches of water per week. The most critical watering period is 10-14 days before maturity. Lack of water then can turn the leaves bitter. Heads mature at different rates. Pick when heads are soft, before a core (seed stalk) starts to form. They can be stored in the refrigerator for three to four weeks.
