55 days. Also known as the Candy Cane Beet or the Bullseye Beet, this heirloom beet originates from the coastal town Chioggia in Northern Italy near Venice. Tops are green with a pink striped stem while the roots are cherry red on the outside and reveal alternating rings of white and deep pink when sliced but color fades when cooked. Flavor is a little sweeter than purple beets. Approx. 1,200 seeds/oz.
