60 days. A 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.

Baker Creek IT Specialist David Winter says "Nothing beats it!"

These were easy to grow. Direct sown in a raised veggie garden mid-april here in Montreal. Just picked my first 8 beets of decent size! Nice and tasty sweet. Love the Chiogga varietal, amazong raw in salads and as garnishes.

What are the cons? Aftertaste is radishy

Review:

Such a colorful beet, a total eye pleaser! They are very sweet but with almost a radish like aftertaste which may be too much for some people. My husband and daughters throat hurt after eating them raw. I would grow them again, mainly because they are so pretty lol :)

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.
