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:

We tried these for the first time in 2016. They are a brighter red on the outside, and also smaller than Detroit and other larger varieties, but the sweetness was surprising. I did order my first batch of these from Seed Savers exchange, but I am purchasing them from Baker Creek this time. I typically only order elsewhere for varieties Baker Creek does not have in stock. My wife and I don't recall having any reactions to these beets, other than a pleast surprise. We are going to grow these again in 2017, along with the Golden beets, Sugar beets, and a large dark variety to fill the jars up again. I do recommend these for there excellent flavor, but I guess you'll have to try at your own risk according to others.

Review:

I planted 2 4-ft rows, and was eating beets all summer. These beets were wonderful roasted with a little salt and olive oil or fried in butter. They never got woody or tough. Tasty greens, steamed and dressed with a touch of honey and vinegar. I will grow these every year!

Could it Be...An Allergy
Easy to Grow 2.5
EarlyMaturity 2.5
 

What are the pros? Great taste!

What are the cons? Poor germination.

Review:

I have never eaten these without first cooking,and won't after reading the reviews. Be careful, folks who experienced itchy, burning throats after eating raw beets; it sounds like an allergic reaction. You might want to discuss it with your physician.
