Radicchio Treviso Tardivo Chicory
Italian name: Raddichio tardivo di Treviso
Weight: 2 kg
Description: The most flavourful and prized, this comes last in the season. It is less common, even in Italy, as it is only grown in a small area around the town of Treviso. Identifiable by its large thick edible root and long, thin, pointed dark red leaves, it has a bitter and spicy taste, which mellows when it is grilled or roasted.
Serving suggestion: it’s delicious simply grilled or pan-fried and is equally good in salads.
