Brighten up a dull winter plate with these beautiful candy-striped beets. Their appearance, ringed with magenta and white, is not their only virtue; they are also sweeter in flavour than the standard purple roots. An Italian heirloom variety, Chioggia beets are named after the fishing village near Venice where they were first grown. They are happiest in a cool climate; ours are Lancashire’s finest!
