Chioggia Beets $2.13 EA bunch (FOR 1/21)


'Chioggia' is a pre-1840 Italian heirloom variety of garden beet (Beta vulgaris). Sometimes called Candystripe Beet or Bull's Eye Beet, it is distinguished from other varieties by the alternating concentric rings of scarlet red and white inside.

What do Chioggia beets taste like? Though the candy stripe beet can be prepared much like any other beet, the Chioggia has an especially sweet and mild earthy flavor—and it doesn't 'bleed' as much as regular beets, meaning you don't have to worry about bright red beet juice staining your fingers and clothes.
