Italian heirloom beet that got its start before 1840.  Chioggia, pronounced "key-oh-jah" is a city of Northern Italy near Venice. The surrounding region is known as the Veneto and it's famed for its vegetable production.

Tops are green with pink-striped stems.  Chioggia beet  is fast-growing and long-standing in the fall.  Chioggia has a sweet flavor that will add to just about any dish.  Chioggia beet is noted for its absence of bleeding.

Planting Tips For Beet Seeds:

Beet seeds can be planted in early spring or midsummer.  Soak seeds overnight in damp towel before planting for excellent germination.  Plant beet seeds 1” apart and thin weakest seedlings to desired spacing.  Keep soil evenly moist to prevent beet roots from getting woody.  For longer harvest, stagger beet plantings every 2-3 weeks.




  Revitalized "Caprese" Salad

Note: not all beets are good when eaten raw.  for this recipe, I recommend the Touchstone Golden Beet and the Crosby Egyptian Beet.

  • 1 lb. red beet-thinly sliced
  • 3-4 tbsp fresh mint – chiffonade
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

Toss the beets and mint in olive oil until coated. Add salt and pepper to taste.  Add crumbled feta if desired and serve room temperature or refrigerated.
