Chioggia Beets are a lighter red on the outside, and are striped in a circular pattern of pink and white on the inside. Wonderfully sweet and tender.
Native to Italy, this variety of beet adds sweet, earthy flavor as well as a stunning visual accent to a meal. The lighter coloring of chioggia's won't leave your hands or cutting boards purple as red beets sometimes do.

Enjoy the incredible sweetness of the beets roasted, boiled, hot or cold. The coloring fades slightly when cooked, but can be minimized by adding a splash of lemon juice or vinegar to the cooking water. For the most brilliant effect, thinly slice into disks, semicircles or matchsticks, toss with some salt and lemon juice and add to a salad.
Store beets in a plastic bag in the refrigerator.
