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? 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!

What are the pros? Amazing taste, So sweet!

What are the cons? None.

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!

What are the pros? Great size, wonderful flavor

What are the cons? None

Review:

I planted 3 different beets, and this one was the best, hands down! Absolutely delicious...no earthy taste at all. Be sure to leave enough space between plants as these will give you nice big beets. This variety is definitely one to try!

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.
