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.

What are the pros? Versatile for cooking, pretty

What are the cons? None

Review:

I am in South Dakota; Zone 4/5. These beets were grown in a raised planter box and grow fast without much fuss. This beet has a mild, somewhat nutty flavor. It is good steamed, baked, roasted or grated raw in a salad. My favorite use for them is to chop them in small chunks with yellow squash and zucchini in the bottom of a baking pan. Add a little gravy, cheese and chopped cooked chicken and top with mashed potatoes. Bake about 30 minutes at 350. Delicious. There are never any leftovers. I froze some last year and they froze well; sliced and grated. A very tasty vegetable. It is very different tasting from a red beet; more mild without the earth taste. Very pretty and the greens are tasty if used when they are young.

Burned my throat

What are the pros? Color

What are the cons? Burned my throat

Review:

With these beets I had a few white ones pop up, I could still see the rings but they were all white. So far it seems that only the white beets burn my throat and I've only tried them raw. To avoid anymore discomfort I will be pickleing the rest of these beets. I also notice the my dairy cow could only eat a few of these before she was turned off, I'm thinking I'll probably skip this variety next year.

What are the pros? Great germination rate.

What are the cons? Bitter if left too long

Review:

Great germination rate. Crowd pleaser with amazing visual appeal. Remarkable fresh taste. I have grown in a couple of places in Texas and I really like the flavor profile. Held up in fall as a late crop. Produced well formed beets that maintained the brightest fucia I have ever seen. I left some in the ground too long and they were a bit bitter but thats not the beets fault.
