Varigata Castelfranco Radicchio

80-90 days. One of the most versatile varieties for delectable consumption tossed raw into salads, sautéed or braised with meats or poultry or incorporated into bubbling soups, risotto and pasta, Castelfranco is a must-grow in early spring and fall gardens. A Lettuce look-alike, this rare heirloom thrives in cooler weather when its milder, somewhat sweet flavor with just a hint of tang is at its best. Imported directly from our Italian seed growers, it has upright, rosette-shaped pale grass-green heads with deep wine-red splotches and speckles. (OP.)
