Cichorium endivia 'Palla Rossa' - radicchio, red endive, red chicory, red witlof
DESCRIPTION : Round red heads of wrinkled leaves with a fresh pleasantly bitter flavour. Eat raw in salad, or cooked. Plants are approx 30cm high.
SOWING : Sow in pots or trays Autumn through to Spring. Lightly cover seed to 5mm. Keep moist through germination and while growing.
PLANTING : Plant out when seedlings are large enough to handle. Harvest in 10 weeks from sowing.
CARE : Water and feed regularly through the growing period - little and often for a milder flavour. Cover almost-ready heads with a garden pot to increase leaf colour in the last couple of weeks. If there is no frost, plants can often be cut above ground level and will grow a second crop on the roots, like a cut-and-come-again lettuce.
