Rossa di Treviso Radicchio

80-90 days. An elongated, upright Italian heirloom with much the same shape as Belgian Endive, it has radiant white veins and midribs against rich burgundy-red leaves that develop in color as temperatures cool. Extremely cold-tolerant for early spring sowing, it is best grown in late summer for fall harvest. Its earthy taste and mildly bitter flavor are prized fresh in salad or halved, slathered with olive oil and grilled. (OP.)
