Care and Handling

Ideal temperature is 33 F and 98 to 100 % relative humidity. Radicchio should be pre-cooled soon after harvest. Pre-cooling is best done by vacuum cooling because it is more effective and rapid than hydro-cooling. Radicchio is highly perishable and deteriorates rapidly with increasing temperature.

Ratto Bros. follows and recommends the guidelines set forth by the Federal Department of Agriculture (FDA) about commercial and home users washing all produce thoroughly under running water before eating, cutting, or cooking.
