“Round beetroot from Chioggia” has spherical, light red roots with alternating layers of white and pale red flesh. The sweetest beetroot you will ever eat, and even people who do not normally like beetroot love these. Young tops are excellent in salads.
Direct plant from date of last frost in rows 25cm apart and thin to one plant every 10cm. 60 or so days to maturity, but pick anytime after they are 5cm in diameter. Make sure the top of the beet's bulb is covered with soil; this keeps the entire bulb the same color and prevents 'corkiness' at the top of the bulb. 9g about 500 seeds.
