  • £1.45


Palla Rossa is often called "Radicchio" in Britain. This variety has firm hearts with red/maroon and white leaves for colour in salads.
Chicory is a salad addition similar to lettuce but with a distinct flavour. It is slightly bitter in taste but the blanching of the leaves lessens this bitterness.
