Radicchios (Chicory)

Radicchio is a cultivated form of leaf chicory sometimes known as Italian chicory because it comes from Italian cuisine.

It originated in Italy and this leafy chicory resembles a small red head of lettuce or cabbage. The leaves range in colour from bronzy green to wine red or magenta and are veined in white. With a bitter and spicy taste that mellows when cooked, this unusual veggie also tastes great raw.
