smarties seeds

Gusto Italiano Project

We are very excited to introduce a new collaborative project between Uprising Seeds, the Culinary Breeding Network, and northern Italian vegetable breeders, Smarties.Bio. The project was born primarily from a mutual love of radicchio and a desire to further establish it as an anchor of the fall and winter produce season here in the North America. New this year, we are offering this special line of Certified Organic radicchio and regional specialty brassica seeds, bred and grown in Italy by Smarties.Bio.

Based in Chioggia in the heart of radicchio’s motherland, Smarties exists at the meeting point of tradition and innovation bringing years of modern breeding experience to classic, culturally significant vegetables of their region. Theirs is the first complete line of radicchio available as Certified Organically Grown and bred seed that we know of.

We are offering 15 varieties of radicchio in a range of days-to-maturity slots including:

Rosso di Chioggia (3 var.)
Rosso di Verona (2 var.)
Rosso di Treviso Precoce (2 var.)
Variegato di Castelfranco (3 var)
Puntarelle di Galantina
Variegato di Lusia
Bianco di Chioggia
Catalogna Gigante di Chioggia
Rosa del Veneto

In partnership with the Culinary Breeding Network, over the course of the year we will be sharing lots of content to give culinary and cultural context to these seeds: providing detailed growing information, offering recipes and cooking videos, and working to create shared community through these foods we love.

With the quality on the rise it’s a good time to be a radicchio grower and lover. We look forward to sharing our passion for these crops with you.
