RADICCHIORadicchio is a salad green, similar to Belgian Endive or whitloff chicory, with the exception that leaves have a reddish, burgundy color with white midribs.
The head should be tight and firm, and usually pointed when purchased. Some will be rounded depending on variety. Ideal heads will be slightly smaller than head lettuce. Leaves can remain fresh for up to two weeks in the vegetable crisper.
Plants are grown in a manner similar to "forced" chicory or Belgian Endive (Whitloff Chicory).
