Radicchio is a diverse crop with many cultivars, quickly becoming a popular fall crop for restaurants and for sale through farmers markets. This webinar will include a discussion about saving seed from this biennial crop, as well as an exploration of what on-farm trialing for radicchio looks like. Radicchio is in its first year being a part of the Canadian Organic Vegetable Improvement Project (CANOVI). Planting times for radicchio are day length specific, and trials are a great way to identify the best varieties and suggested planting dates for each region, as well as identifying varieties that would be suitable parents for future breeding projects. Everyone is welcome! This webinar is being hosted in partnership with CANOVI.
