Radicchio Variegato di Castelfranco

106 13
The Marca Trevigiana, the countryside around Treviso, in the Veneto (Northeast of Venice) produces one of Italy's most distinctive vegetables: Radicchio Rosso. Radicchio rosso is, as the name suggests, red, or rather the leaves are, while the ribs are white, which makes for an aesthetically pleasing plant. Radicchio Variegato di Castelfranco, which comes from a neighboring town, is a cross between a round-headed endive and Radicchio Rosso.

It's known as The Edible Flower for obvious reasons, and is primarily used in salads.
