Product Overview

Beta vulgaris

Chioggia' is the candystripe beet. When cut, beautiful red and white interior rings are revealed that look like peppermints!

This Italian heirloom from the mid-1800s got its name from a fishing village near Venice, Italy. 'Chiogga' has delicious green tops and tasty roots. Each seed produces multiple plants and the thinnings are a delightful addition to your salad. Packed with nutrition, beets are high in fiber, potassium, folic acid, and the antioxidant, betacyanin. Delicious roasted, steamed, and pickled.

Variety Info

1"–3" pinkish/red roots with interior rings of bright pinkish/red and white; green leaftops.
