Chioggia
Beta vulgaris

65 days — Also known as 'Bull's Eye', 'Candystripe' and 'Dulce di Chioggia', 'Chioggia' (pronounced "key oh juh") is an Italian heirloom named after a fishing town near Venice, Italy.

Slicing reveals alternating red and white rings, like a target. The mild flavored tops can also be used raw or cooked as greens.

Each packet contains four grams which is approximately 200 seeds.
What a spectacular beet!
We are amazed at the size and quality of Chiogga. We love to peel and slice them to show the red and white zoning, and grill them (grilled beets are delicious - grilling can temper the earthy flavor that some people don't like, and adds a bit of flavor complexity and tames the sweetness).

Nice beet.
Perfect germ, no pest or disease problems to report. I put them in as a follow-up crop when the Tall Tops were done, and they didn't mind the summer heat at all. Nice shape, size, sweet flavor. A little sensitive to crowding, but that's my fault.

Only beet I have ever liked
I am not usually fond of beets, but these were excellent. They are much sweeter than the others I have tried, and have less of the earthy flavor. Most beet greens are too bitter for my taste, but these have very little flavor.

So far
Germination has been about 75%. I have high hopes. I will return and add more in a couple months.
