Decorative chicory with relatively open, very light green, almost white heads with red speckles. Due to its graceful appearance Variegata di Castelfranco is also known as orchid lettuce. It's a traditional Italian radicchio, visually more like a
lettuce, but with the slightly stronger, thicker leaves of radicchio.

The orchid lettuve tastes rather sweet and mild, not bitter at all. It is a real delicacy. Tortoises love this gourmet salad.
