Growing in November!

I planted seed in Nov. (zone 7) and it is January and I have heads in a raised bed covered in 2 ML plastic. No damage-just beautiful heads.

Gorgeous variety

I'm starting my third year using this mix. It contains a huge variety including my favorites and I like the convenience. The seed quantity is extremely generous and I've found that seeds germinate reliably the second year, something I haven't normally found to be the case with radicchio seeds from other U.S. seed suppliers. I grow this both for salads and for full size plantings — here in zone 7 I get mostly salads in early spring and both baby leaf and mature harvests from fall/winter crops. My friends and customers especially like this mixed with two parts baby lettuce mix, one part baby arugula , one part radicchio mix. Most years I harvest the mature plants through the winter. The first year that I tried this mix I let one bed bolt. There was a breathtaking show of vigorous and gorgeous foliage forms— some getting quite tall up to 5 feet while the shorter varieties sprawled around the feet. The blue blooms and the frowsy showy lower leaves were a crowd pleaser for all who visited. Some of the seed put forth self sowed and I re-harvested in September. Never fear that you can't grow radicchios — this is, after all, a first cousin of dandelions. I'm sure it will grow—almost like weeds.
