A mild-flavoured beetroot with beautiful concentric rings that alternate between red and white.
This beetroot’s claim to fame are the beautiful concentric rings that alternate between bright red and white. The roots look so ordinary from the outside, then when they are cut in half the bright colours just jump out at you! When cooked, the roots have a mild, earthy flavour typical of beetroot, but sadly the rings disappear, leaving behind an attractive pink colour.
Like other beetroots, Chioggia Barbietola can be either sown directly into the ground or multi-seeded in modular trays and then transplanted. However, cold conditions will trigger bolting so put sowing off until the weather warms up in late spring and early summer.
