This Variegato di Lusia strain shows improved heading and consistent external and internal speckling in our trials. Although some heads will form very early, others will continue maturing over a long, 2–3 week period. Harvest when full but loose, like butterhead lettuce. Bel fiore, or "beautiful flower" in Italian, refers to how the heads can be displayed with centers opened to resemble a flower. Mild radicchio flavor in all seasons. Avg. 19,250 seeds/oz. Packet: 200 seeds.
