Chicory Orchidea Rossa - Red Orchid. One of the easiest red chicories to grow and one of the earlier ones at 75 days to maturity. Very attractive deep red rosette-shaped head. Best in fall, when color is deepest red. Use transplants in spring to get it to maturity before summer heat arrives. Plant any time for baby leaves for salad. 5 gram packet.
