Radicchio Rosso di Treviso IGP season has officially started

Consorzio di Tutela del Radicchio Rosso di Treviso IGP has announced that the season of the certified produce has officially started. This year, there are an additional 500 authorised hectares (+22%) for the three varieties following PGI specifications. Radicchio crops have grown rapidly since 2012 (+154%). This season seems to be starting well as quality is excellent and now it only needs to get some cold. 

Tardivo is the most precious variety of radicchio from Veneto and the only one that is forced by being partially submerged in water. Crops have been expanded by 7.4% compared to last year (283 hectares). In an average period, the growth exceeds 100% (there were 134 hectares in 2012).

"This season, crops of Radicchio Rosso di Treviso (early and late) and Radicchio Variegato di Castelfranco cultivated in the Treviso, Venice and Padua areas have reached 500 hectares, 22% more than last year. In the medium period, the growth is actually +154% with respect to 2012. It's a radical transformation of an agriculture that is increasingly dedicated to high-quality productions. Over the past few years, the production of certified radicchio has increased to protect productions against fakes and to safeguard prices. This has also been done with an eye to consumers and retailers, which tend to require guaranteed authentic products more and more."
