Beta vulgaris, Tondo Barbietola di Chioggia (Circa 1841) -Traditional ‘not too large’ Red, globe shaped Italian Heirloom variety from Chioggia, a fishing village on the Adriatic. It tastes just like regular purple beets, maybe a little sweeter. The skin is a hot pink/fuchsia colour, and when sliced open, the inside has beautiful pink and white stripes. Like any other beet, it can be prepared the same way; steamed, sautéed, roasted, & pickled. The greens are also edible. Sadly, the beautiful stripes fade when the beet is cooked (harvest within 7 wks from sowing) , Seed Count Approx - 45 avg
