This good, old variety is from Chioggia, Italy. It impresses with striking red and white stripes that it retains even after cooking. The beets are particularly delicate and pleasantly sweet. They do not have the typical earthy beetroot flavour. Enjoy a rich harvest of beautiful, large, spherical, deep red beets. The beets are sure to catch your eye on veggie trays, in stews, in potato salads- or in juice. The young leaves can be used as a salad, the older leaves can be used like chard. The young beets are considered a delicacy.
