Pink Verona Radicchio
Pretty and pink, this rare variety of radicchio, grown in Verona, is a splash of colour in winter months. The leaves are slightly sweet and a little bitter, with a crisp crunch. There are about a dozen main types of radicchio grown in northern Italy; all are late-season winter vegetables. Common radicchios include chioggia, which looks like a small maroon cabbage with thick white veins reaching up from the base; treviso, with narrower, longer leaves; the curly radicchio trevisano tardivo and small shiny grumolo rosso.
Pink radicchio can vary from pastel pink with light-green shades to magenta, but the colour doesn’t affect the flavour. Pick ones with crisp leaves and no brown edges.
