60 days. Pre-1840 Italian heirloom beet, this variety arrived in the USA prior to 1865. They have light red skin and beautiful rings inside, like red and white candy stripes. The flesh is very tender, mild and sweet. Named after a fishing town in Italy, a favorite here.

Review:

This is one great beet. The beet root and the greens are divine when steamed. Greens also add a little spice when used raw in a green smoothie.

What are the pros? Fun to grow, unique

What are the cons? Maybe not the best tasting

Review:

This was a great beet and tasted pretty good. The stripes are certainly very unique and attract some attention. I recommend growing this variety if you want to try something interesting out, but maybe this is just me but the taste was not the most spectacular. This could have been due to poor soil conditions though, or something like that, so try them before you make a call!

Review:

I love this beet, I grow nothing but heirloom plants and this beet can be beet! Grow this beet in a 50% compost mix with your soil. Pick this beet when its about the size of a baseball. Chop off the foliage leaving 4" of stem. Don't cut off the main tap root. Wash and steam them, steam, beet and tap root whole. The skin will just slide off (my rabbit loves the skins!). Slice and enjoy the sweetest beet on earth!
