Radicchio Pella Rosa
Approx. 110 Seeds/Pkg. An early heading selection of this increasingly popular vegetable. Firm red heads with attractive white veins. Can also be sown and left unthinned for ?salad leaves? adding zest and a hint of bitterness to the mixed salad. In Italy, where the vegetable is quite popular, it is usually eaten grilled in olive oil, or mixed into dishes such as risotto: in the United States it is gaining in popularity but is more often eaten raw in salads. As with all chicories, if grown correctly its roots can be used to mix with coffee. It can also be served with pasta, in strudel, as a poultry stuffing, or as part of a tapenade. Species: Chicorium intybus
