Cichorium intybus

The varieties of radicchio
are often named after the Italian regions where they originate. This vegetable
has gorgeous dark red leaves and uniform large heads. Radicchio grows well
during the cooler spring and summer months in cooler locations. If it matures
during the warmest months of summer, the leaves turn bitter. Radicchio grown in
the autumn or over the winter retains its sweet flavour. In cold climates, grow
radicchio in a cold frame for continual harvest throughout the cold months.

Sow thinly where they are
to crop, 1.5cm deep, directly into finely-prepared soil, in rows spaced 30cm
(12in) apart. Can also be sown underglass early in the year or in autumn into
modules filled with seed sowing compost and transplanted out, filling vacant
spaces on the plot. 10-12 days to germination


pH: 4.5 – 5.5
