60 days. Chioggia beet is the most whimsical veggie in the patch. Slice the roots open to reveal concentric rings of pink and white, this fun variety adds pop to salads and pizzazz to pickles. Originally grown in the historic fishing town of Chioggia, Italy,located just across the lagoon from Venice. This ancient town has been dubbed “little Venice” for its canals and ancient charm, but local Venetians know that Chioggia is the town to escape to for authentic family style food. It’s a historic town that has a reputation among Italians for retaining food traditions and quality cuisine. Chioggia was mentioned by legendary French seed house Vilmorin in 1840. When first introduced to the U.S., Chioggia beet was considered a gourmet oddity, primarily sold at upscale markets. The unusual rings were a startling departure from the typical red beet, and so the variety was not immediately embraced by the public. Today the Chioggia beet remains a popular choice for market farmers; the roots are alluring and have the culinary stamp of approval from top chefs the world over. The candy cane striped roots have a crisp crunch when eaten raw in salads. Those who are averse to that signature earthy beet flavor will appreciate this variety, as the flavor is remarkably mellow. The greens are crisp and of high quality. The flesh is very tender, mild, and sweet.

Chiogga Beets So sweet
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 3.5
 

What are the pros? Easy to Grow, no Jap Beetles.

What are the cons? None

Review:

I absolutely love Chiogga Beets! These were by far the best of the four varieties I grew (Detroit Red, Gold, and Bull's Blood). They are sweet little sugar bombs when roasted! I clean them, roast them with the skins on wrapped up in aluminum foil and drizzled with a teaspoon of olive oil, then after they are cooked tender, slip off the skins. Mine cooked up white with a light blush of pink on the outside. My grandkids hate vegetables, and it is a struggle to get them to eat veggies. I made a huge mixing bowl full of these roasted beets and was letting them cool when my granddaughter asked me what they were, and I told her to try one and find out. So she popped one in her mouth, goes WOW! And five minutes later she had eaten the entire mixing bowl full! And no wonder - they are earthy, yet very sweet. They grew very easily and were not touched by heavy Japanese Beetle infestation.

Best tasting beet

What are the pros? Flavor, easy to grow

What are the cons? nothing

Review:

This beet has the sweetest taste of any beets we have ever tried. It is wonderful roasted or cooked into bortsch. We had a very wet, high humidity but often cold summer and this plant thrived in it. The only disappointment was that the circles in our beets were not very defined and the color was more white than that in the picture, but al in all this is our absolute favorite..

Very Pretty
Easy to Grow 3.0
EarlyMaturity 3.0
 

What are the pros? Very Pretty Beets

What are the cons? Poor Germination

Review:

These are the most beautiful beets! If beauty is the goal then these are your beets. I, however, found that they did not germinate particularly well nor did many of them grow to be what I would consider a normal size beet. I also grew another, more traditional, beet that outpaced this beet in every way. I may consider throwing a few of these seeds in the ground but I won't dedicate too much space to them this year.

Review:

I have always had a hard time with growing beets (always used the total red beet) then I found this one. The taste is amazing and so easy to grow. I will be ordering this beet again and again. I just cut it up and put it in our salads, cooked some but, it is wonderfully sweet!
