Chioggia is pronounced -kee-oh-gee-uh- let's just get that our of the way first. From first glance you'd assume this beetroot was like any other but upon slicing...wow! Chioggia is straight out of Dr. Suess with it's pink and white rings.
It's not only pleasant on the eye, but pleasant on the palate too! These beets contain the highest content of geosmin. Basically, it's the organic compound that gives them their deeply earth flavour and aroma making them really stand out from their pairs.
