Last Friday Jose and I were walking the fields and taking a look at the Radicchio trials. The seed was provided to us by Georgeanne Brennan, the cookery book writer. We decided that we needed to plant most of the varieties a week or two earlier and give them just a little bit more space. In his hands he has Castle Franco and in his arm a green variety called Pan Di Zucherro. I have ordered more seeds from Italy to play with this year.
