It is a non-forcing variety. Radicchio (pronounced rah-dee-key-oh) is a leaf-type chicory that is sometimes known as Italian chicory.

Best sown in early spring for use as baby greens, or in mid-to-late summer for an autumn harvest of mature heads. Requires protection from the Sun for best results. Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 450 seeds.
