Originally from the southern tip of the Venetian lagoon in Italy around 1840. This bulls eye coloured beet is one of the tastiest beets and subtle looking there is. Great for pickling or eating fresh. The beet greens/leaves are especially delicious and one of our favourites.
Sow directly outdoors 1/2″ deep 1″ apart in full sun when ground is starting to get warm in spring. Thin to 4-6″ apart. Sow second set of seeds one month later for continual harvest.
