This Exotic Slab of Seed grows 2 different varieties of Beetroot:
Candy Cane beetroot is also known as the Bulls-Eye Beet or Chioggia. An Italian Heirloom with leaves that are green with a pink striped stem while the roots are cherry red on the outside with alternating rings of white and deep pink when sliced but color fades when cooked. Flavor is sweeter than purple beets.
Golden Detroit’s orange roots turn golden yellow when cooked. Sweet taste even when large. Good bolt resistance and stores well. Eat beet tops before any sign of wilting for maximum flavor. In most cases the smaller the beet the sweeter and the larger the beet the more ‘earthy’ it will taste.
