Beetroot- ChioggiaBeetroot- Chioggia

Wow! An exceptional variety of beetroot, not only visually stunning but fantastic in flavour and texture, meaty but not overly thick, great flavour even by itself boiled or roasted. This is my favourite beetroot variety!!

Beetroot- Chioggia

Found these as easy to grow as other beetroot varieties. The flavour is not as rich as the regular beetroot, particularly noticeable when roasting. looks awesome and tastes great raw in salads. Colour tends to run between the rings when hot pickling, loosing that unique look. But find thinly sliced rounds as a good way to go. Find they're best when small-medium size. Too small - they don't have the colour rings, too large - they don't seem to taste as sweet. Cool variety to grow just for a change anyway
