The Radicchio Milan, ‘Cichorium intybus’, is a self-heading type that is easy to grow. The Milan Radicchio adds a unique flavor to salads. Milan is strikingly beautiful with its deep red and very white veins. It adds a distinctive, desirable, slightly bitter flavor to salads, is delicious sauteed with butter and garlic, or eaten with slices of fresh tomatoes. Cut head above the crown and it may re-sprout producing another head in the fall. Remove the outer leaves until you reach the inner heart where the veins are white.
