65 days. Radicchio forms lettuce-like heads wrapped in beautiful, purplish-red leaves with contrasting white veins. The distinctive, sharp flavor is a favorite in salads, but is also delicious steamed with mixed vegetables, used in cole slaw, or added to stir-fries. Cooking gives radicchio a milder flavor. Slow to bolt.
