                                                                                Chioggia or the Candy stripe Beet

                                                                                   

                                                            These charmers come from a pre-1840 Italian beet.

          They had bright green edible tops, are mild and yummy even raw.  The tops make great animal fodder as well. 

                The greens are full of yummy yummy vitamins and minerals and a great source of fiber.

           The roots are beautiful red and white in color, and very sweet; they can (pickle) well and taste great boiled.

   I  love these  because they are a multiple use plant....you can harvest greens for many weeks before harvesting the roots.

           These mature in about 60 days for the roots, but you can harvest greens as soon as 30 days.

                    I will send you my care and feeding sheet with these...If you have a high lime soil it's a plus...

These mature in about 50 days for the roots, making them a fast beet crop.  You can harvest greens as soon as 30 days. A neat fact about beets It is a popular misconception that the color of beetroot is due to a pigment known as anthocyanin which is the pigment in red cabbage. It is, in fact, due to a purple pigment betacyanin and a yellow pigment betaxanthin known collectively as betalins. There are other breeds of beetroot which are not the usual deep red, like 'Burpee's Golden' with an orange red skin and yellow flesh and the white 'Albino Vereduna.' These have a greater or lesser distribution of the two betalin pigments.

The pigments are contained in cell vacuoles. Beetroot cells are quite unstable and will 'leak' when cut, heated, or when in contact with air or sunlight. This is why red beetroots leave a purple stain. Leaving the skin on when cooking, however, will maintain the integrity of the cells and therefore minimize leakage.

The pigment is stabile in acidic conditions, which is a major reason why beetroot is often pickled. In the United States, it is the traditional colorant for pink lemonade. Beet juice is also a common choice for edible ink, like when marking grades on cuts of meat.

I will send you my care and feeding sheet with these...All beets need rich soil; I use rabbit manure, chicken and goat with great results. Itís never too soon to feed your soil.
