Radicchio - Rossa Di Treviso Precoce
This is an Italian salad vegetable used to add zest, colour, texture and unique flavour to mixed salads. It is ideal for autumn and early winter use, with outstanding weather resistance. Radicchio Treviso Precoce Mesola can also be used as a salad leaf through the spring and summer, with its distinctive flavour and texture in a mixed salad.
It prefers a fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. Sow seeds from April to Sept for salad leaf, or June to July for full sized heads. Sow seeds thinly, 1cm deep in drills 30cm apart. Thin seedlings when large enough to handle to 30cm apart. Later sowings will be less prone to bitterness.
