$5.20$110.21 AUD excl gst

Stromboli (ex #SM4.1) Round and perfectly overwrapped heads

A professional product that respects the market requirements, typical red colour with excellent uniformity on the distribution of the white midrib. Rossa di Chioggia is the best known radicchio type. Bred from the Variegato di Castelfranco type, Rossa di Chioggia leaves have a radiating, dispersed, and much thinner rib integrated into the texture of the leaf. Plants are unfussy and have been redeveloped, by, into a wide spectrum of very uniform days-to-maturity cycles or “slots”


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
