This beautiful green and salad vegetable comes in an array of shapes and colours. Delicate tasting and vitamin rich.
How to Grow: Grow as you would lettuce. Sow seed in early May as soon as the soil can be worked, then every two weeks thereafter to ensure a continuous supply. Sow about 3 mm (1/8”) deep in rows 45 cm (18”) apart. An even supply of moisture during the entire growth period is imperative for success. Treat Radicchio like head lettuce and transplant the tender seedlings approx. 20-30 cm (8-12”) apart in the row.
