The city of Treviso is one of the epicenters of radicchio production, and Rosso di Treviso Precoce is one of the best known types in Italy, second only to Rosso di Chioggia in terms of amount produced. “Precoce” means “early” in Italian and is used here to differentiate it from the late fall/winter forced-type, Treviso Tardivo. It is relatively unfussy to grow producing dense vertically elongated heads with wine-red leaves and wide contrasting white mid-ribs for autumn harvests. It has the mildest bitterness of any of the red heading radicchio types, and though it is very much at home in a raw salad preparation, it is widely considered a type for sauteing, grilling, and roasting in Italy. Much of the plants sweetness that compliments the bitterness is found in the midrib. As with all radicchio, be especially mindful of your planting dates as a successful crop requires a much narrower planting window than most garden vegetables


Selection Cycles (days to maturity slots). For most vegetables growers stagger planting dates to provides a continuous harvest. With radicchio, a different strategy is employed. For most, heading radicchio is best suited to seeding around the summer solstice, Dec 21st to Jan 3rd, transplanting 3-4 weeks later. To achieve extended harvest periods, rather than staggering planting dates, radicchio uses days-to-maturity options within a type. These are often referred to as “slots” with many types having early, mid, and late slotted varieties
