Beetroot – Boltardy (Organic)£2.33 Add to basket
Beetroot – Boltardy (Organic)
A classic all-purpose beetroot, well suited to early sowings as a result of its excellent resistance to bolting. Boltardy is a winner of the RHS Award of Garden Merit and has a well earned reputation for being a real ‘workhorse’ variety. Many large scale growers choose this variety over its modern hybrid cousins for early sowings. We love it as it does exactly what is says on the tin.

Beetroot – Chioggia (Organic)£2.90 – £4.60 Select options
Beetroot – Chioggia (Organic)
An Italian variety with striking white and red concentric rings throughout its flesh. This unusual cultivar has been around since the early 19th century and originates from the coastal town of Chioggia near Venice in Northern Italy. With its delicate flavour and soft flesh it will make an ideal raw addition in salads or as a decorative side dish. When cooked the rings will fade out a little and become pinkish but the beetroot will keep its sweet and mild delicious taste. Definitely our favourite in terms of looks!£2.90 – £4.60

A distinctive, very attractive variety which forms long, thin cylindrical beets . Deep purple, and typically 20cm tall, and 6cm diameter, but like any beet, can get very large with enough room. They look great in the veg patch, at the market and also on your plate! Very suitable as a main crop and has excellent storage capability.
