Varigata di Castelfranco, organic

Cichorium intybus var. foliosum

Is a very beautiful lettuce from Italy, much appreciated at least since the 1700s. The leaves are spotted with deeply wine-red spots from the outer clear green to the inner cream-yellow leaves in the loosely knit head. They are sweetly bitter and brighten up the tamest salad. Castelfranco is easy to grow, sound and hardy and can remain ready for harvest far into late autumn. The roots can be force-grown as root-chicory. A portion contains about 300 seeds.
