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). Each beet seed produces 2 to 6 plants., Seed Count Approx - 50 to 60 avg

 SOWING - Seeds can be sown every few weeks from March onwards for a regular supply. You can make an early start in late February by sowing indoors and planting out under cloches in March. Beetroot seeds are relatively large and are easy to handle and space out along the row. Sow three seeds at 10cm (4in) spacings, 2.5cm (1in) deep, in rows 30cm (1ft) apart. Sow small batches at fortnightly intervals
