Treviso red chicory

  • Treviso Red Chicory – IGP Precoce: large tuft, elongated and tightly closed; the main vein of the leaf is white and branches out into many small capillaries of deep red color. The taste is bitter but pleasant and the texture is crunchy. After ripening in the field, it is harvested from the beginning of September and is immediately ready for selling.
  • Treviso Red Chicory - IGP Tardivo: it is the finest and the progenitor of all the other varieties of radicchio. It has regular, compact and uniform sprouts; the dorsal rib is fairly large and the leaf flap is of intense red color. The flavor is bitter, with tasty leaves and a crunchy main rib. Harvest begins in November and, before being sold, is carried out in three distinct phases: 'Pre-forcing' – bundles are assembled from 25-30 plants and positioned in furrows and sheltered from low temperatures inside small polytunnels; 'Forcing and whitening' – the bundles are placed in tanks filled with 10 to 12 cm of running resurgence water and left for 15-20 days; 'Finishing' – excessive leaves are removed in heated rooms. At the end of these three phases the bundles are untied and are ready for selling.
  • Castelfranco IGP Variegato Chicory- called the 'flower that you can eat', it is a cross between the Treviso Red Chicory IGP Tardivo and escarole. The tuft has a minimum diameter of 15 cm, the leaves are round and cream-white with variegations from light purple to bright red. The taste is sweet and pleasantly bitter. Castelfranco chicory is harvested from the beginning of October and, before being sold, undergoes forcing - the tufts are immersed in water and then placed in heated rooms to achieve the correct amount of moisture and light and best support shoots growth.
