The Rosso Tardivo variety of radicchio has elongated finger-like maroon leaves that have a broad white center rib with a shape similar to romaine.

This variety is more bold in taste than regular radicchio rosso, with a slightly bitter, nutty flavor.

Its predominant white coloring is cultivated by a complicated second growth technique similar to Belgium Endive. The Rosso Tardivo is harvested with substantial taproot. Each plant’s outer leaves are removed and the plants are then preserved in darkened furrows where the taproot is immersed in spring water. Each plant forms new leaves in the absence of light.

Radicchio is a leafy member of the chicory family, which explains its strong bite when eaten raw.

Radicchio Tardivo is best appreciated sautéed, braised, grilled or roasted as it holds its shape during the cooking process.
