Leave it to the Italians to develop a beet that not only tastes like candy, but looks like it. Named for a town near Venice, Chioggia (pronounced key-oh-ja) beets are among the sweetest of beets. Their claim to fame are those stunning fuchsia-colored swirls throughout the beet. Not only are these the most delicious beets you will every taste, they also don’t “bleed” like other beets, so you won’t get that red color all over your hands. Sold by the bunch.
