Chicory Red Treviso Early
Rossa trevigiana. A spectacular long slender-leaved variety that is green in the summer but with the onset of cool weather turns a beautiful red with white veins. From Treviso in Italy where a local poet described it as "un fiore che si mangia" - a flower to eat! This variety is non-heading and the leaves are tender yet crisp. Ideal for a tasty salad.
Matures 75 days from transplant.
