Play with fire and channel your inner Katniss Everdeen with our Guardsmark (chioggia) organic beet seeds. A striking Italian heirloom variety with light-red, smooth round roots and bright pink and white alternating rings inside that reminds us of archery target boards. These sweet beets are about 5cm (2") in diameter with mild green leaves and pale red stems. Interestingly, each red ring in the cross section of these beets represents one lunar month of growth. Chioggia organic beet seeds are a staff favourite that add festive colour to any meal. It's easy to save seeds from this beet variety, but beets are biennial, so they flower and go to seed the spring after you plant them.
