Variegata di Lusia can be thought of as a loose chioggia type with similar shape, same diffuse veining, but much milder bitterness Like many of the pale to gold radicchio its bitterness is in the background and its texture most akin to lettuce family greens with a tender crisp crunch (think iceberg meets romaine for an after-dinner amaro). Its a beautiful addition to salads shredded raw and we’ll always recommend grilled wedges for just about any of the radicchio types. An excellent choice to win people over to this family of bitter delights or to dip a toe in yourself


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
