  • Description:
    Native to the Mediterranean, the Chicory was regarded as an ancient medicinal plant since ancient times, confirmed by the testimony of Galen, who quoted it as a medicine of the liver and useful to stomach disorders. Other authors explain at length the medicinal properties of this plant, referring more or less to what has been said by Galen. The chicory, however, is mainly known for its food use. As a food it was in fact widely cultivated in all gardens, giving rise to a number of edible vegetable varieties with ever better organoleptic characteristics. Currently the many varieties of chicory are a mass-market product in horticultural markets under the name of "endive", "radicchio", "salad" and so on. The „Radicchio Rosso of Treviso" is nothing but a variety of Cichorium intybus L. obtained after careful selection, wise intersections and ecological adaptations made by man.
