3.5g (Approx. 280 to 320 seeds)

An Italian open pollinated heirloom developed before 1840 and introduced to the U.S. before 1865. A sweet, light red variety that when sliced reveals superb alternating scarlet and white rings. A variety that matures very early, is bolt resistant, has a mild, peppery flavor and sweeter than most beets. Requires less cooking time than most beets, does not bleed and is high in beta carotene and vitamin C. The 2 to 4 inch roots are great roasted. When baked whole and sliced just before serving the slices of this sweet variety retain their unique markings. Often roasted then sliced and used in vegan sandwiches. Midseason.
