Organic Radicchio – Firestorm
This Italian salad vegetable is rich in antioxidants. It is best grown for full sized heads in autumn and early winter with excellent weather resistance. The round heads have green outer leaves.
Sow seeds from June to July for full sized heads, thinly in well prepared soil in full sun, 13mm deep in drills 30cm apart. Seeds can be sown in pots on the windowsill for fresh leaves all year round. Thin seedlings when large enough to handle to 3cm apart. Keep well watered to minimise bolting (running to seed).
