Italian cuisine relies particularly on regional, crunchy, fresh and aromatic ingredients - best harvested when fully ripe in the morning. Either you live in Italy and can visit one of the colorful farmers' markets with these delicacies or you can simply grow your favorite vegetables yourself.
This seed set contains five typical Italian vegetables that you can easily grow yourself in Central Europe:
Bulbous fennel 'Romanesco' (Foeniculum vulgare var. azoricum)
A traditional Italian vegetable fennel variety.
Tuscan palm cabbage 'Cavolo Nero di Toscana' (Brassica oleracea)
The Tuscan palm cabbage is a very robust and decorative type of leaf cabbage that can be used in a variety of ways.
Runner bean 'Borlotto Lingua Di Fuoco' (Phaseolus vulgaris)
A decorative old runner bean variety from Italy.
Artichoke 'Imperial Star' (Cynara scolymus)
The artichoke is a common ingredient in antipasti. It also looks good in the flower bed; the large buds, which turn into purple flowers, are a real decoration.
Radicchio 'Palla Rossa' (Cichorium intybus var. foliosum)
A traditional Italian radicchio variety from Chioggia that forms spherical heads in a beautiful dark wine red and has the typical slightly bitter taste.
The seed bags and detailed sowing instructions in German and English are packaged in beautiful gift packaging - a great, sustainable gift for the garden. Every plant lover will be happy about this.
The organic seeds in this set are seed-proof. This means that seeds can later be obtained from the plants for further propagation without any problems.
