Chioggia Guardsmark Beets, Organic
Aptly nicknamed Candy Stripe beets. Fun and festive with sweet, mild flavor!
This old Italian heirloom is THE beet to grow if you can only grow one. It’s hard to believe that something so bright and festive emerges out of the dirt. Their striking beauty is best appreciated sliced raw or in matchsticks, but they are also wonderful for roasting where their color and flavor will mellow. And don’t forget to eat the greens too, steamed with lots of butter. Yumm.
Beets are a cool season plant. Direct sow in full sun through Spring and late Summer to early Fall.
