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
