Product Description

Cicoria Rossa di Treviso, also known as Treviso Radicchio, is a distinctive variety of chicory appreciated for its unique flavor and striking appearance. Originating from the Treviso region in Italy, this vegetable boasts elongated, deep red leaves with white veins, forming a tight, elongated head. Treviso Radicchio is celebrated for its crisp texture and a slightly bitter taste, which becomes milder and more nuanced when cooked.

Treviso Radicchio is versatile in the kitchen, suitable for a wide range of culinary applications. It can be enjoyed raw in salads, where its bold color and flavor stand out, or it can be grilled, roasted, or sautéed, which brings out its natural sweetness. This chicory variant is a staple in Italian cuisine, often featured in risottos, pasta dishes, and as an accompaniment to meats and cheeses.

Rich in vitamins and minerals, Cicoria Rossa di Treviso not only adds a splash of color and a gourmet touch to dishes but also offers health benefits, including high fiber content and antioxidants. Its cultivation typically starts in summer, with harvest occurring in late autumn and winter, contributing to its characteristic flavor developed through exposure to cold temperatures.
