Beautiful beet has deep reddish-purple leaves! Very sweet and delicious, the earliest thinning’s spark up spring and fall salads with a leaf color as richly dark red as radicchio. The beets are tasty too and have pretty pink rings inside. As the roots enlarge, baby beets are also delicious cooked and mixed with salad.
Italian heirloom from the town of Chioggia, a fishing village near Venice, that has been popular since the early 1800s. Sliced roots look like bull's-eyes having concentric rings of white alternating with wine-red. The flesh is very tender, mild, and sweet. The green leaves are an excellent spinach substitute.
Detroit Dark Red
Widely adapted, very popular dark red beet. Dark green foliage has some red coloration. Use fresh or canned. Resistant to Downy Mildew. Excellent flavor.
Yellow Intermediate Mangel
White- and yellow-ringed roots measure 4-6½" long and vary in shape. While mangel and fodder beets are larger than typical beets and were traditionally used for animal feed, you’ll find the sweet, juicy, and smooth-textured roots are prime for the dinner table and not just the barnyard.
