I've got quite a few beds of beets in this year and I love trying new and interesting varieties.
So far I've got three beds I can harvest from at the moment and these are the beets from each one that me and the children pulled up for tea last night.
From left to right Golden, Di Choggia and Albino!
Only the middle one has got a decent name! Shame really, who'd call a plant Albino!
The Di Choggia is really beautiful when it's cut up but they all taste amazing. I think I need to do a blind taste test really to see which is best.
This lot got made into soup and due to the selection it didn't have the deep red colour that you'd normally get from beetroot soup but still tasted amazing served with fresh baked granary rolls.
What's your favourite variety of beetroot?
