Chioggia (“key-oh-jah”) beets are a classic Italian garden heirloom variety. They have been grown and sold throughout the Mediterranean since the 1840’s. Unlike traditional red beets, Chioggia seeds grow a clean, crisp culinary variety often sliced up for garden salads, garnishes, and pickling. The inside has a beautiful red and white candycane-striped root, Chioggia is a cool weather and open-pollinated favorite, delivering one of the most unique and prized beets ever.
