This heirloom Italian variety of beetroot was named after a fishing village near Venice and we believe is the most stunning variety to grow with it's white and red striped circles, perfect for salads and other showy culinary dishes.

The flavour is mild earthy and sweet with the advantage that it doesn't bleed like the red varieties.

  • For Early Beetroot
  • Sow February to April, preferably in module trays; this is a cluster seed so multiple seedlings will emerge.
  • Plant out after hardening off 4" (10 cm) apart in rows 12" (30 cm) apart.
  • Thin out to one plant per station or remove one beetroot at a time carefully when about the size of a table tennis ball leaving one to grow to full size.
  • Harvest approximately May-July.
  • For Main Crops
  • Sow mid-April to July two seeds 4" apart in rows 12" (30 cm) apart. Sow in 1" (2.5 cm) deep drills.
  • When the seedlings are 1" (2.5 cm) high thin out to one plant per station or remove one beetroot at a time carefully when about the size of a table tennis ball leaving the other to grow to full size.
  • Harvest approximately September-October.
  • Top Tips
  • Water regularly in hot dry weather to keep roots sweet and stop them going 'woody'.
  • Roots will store all winter without loss of flavour if plunged in coarse sand or well-composted bark.
