Chioggia Beet

45-55 days. From Italy hails this heirloom striped Beet - a most unusual rosy-red, round Beet on the outside with alternating rings of white and bright pink on the inside. Exceptionally sweet, steam Chioggia lightly to avoid "bleeding". Avoid overcooking to retain its delicate, rich flavor. Or try coarsely grating it on top of a salad for an unusual garnish. Beet green lovers take note: Chioggia's greens were one of the top taste test winners. They are paler green than usual, with a flavor and texture of fine, young Swiss Chard. (OP.)
