Radicchio Grumolo are a wild variety of radicchio, grown in and near Verona, in North East Italy. These rosette shaped radicchio of varying colours are strikingly beautiful to look at! Do their flavour match their looks? You better believe it!
I just adore this variety of radicchio; with their mild bittersweet flavour, they are perfect in so many ways. I love adding radicchio grumolo to salads for a hint of spice and colour but they are just as perfect used in any cooked recipe that calls for radicchio.
The image below shows you baby Radicchio Grumolo, even milder in flavour and my favourite. Here in the UK, they are supplied by Natoora, and in my case, I get them from Ocado, the folks who deliver my grocery.
