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.

What are the pros? Pretty, sweet, and pest free

What are the cons? Didn't grow enough.

Review:

Chioggia beet...YUM!. Slow to mature but sweet and worth the wait. It's very tasty and stays crisp when pickled. If you're looking for that deep ruby color this is not the variety for you. But, that's not really a knock against it just a fact. I will definitely grow more once the weather cools back down.

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.
