[60 days] Forono beetroot is an old Italian variety that is easy to grow, super-flavourful, and, due to its cylindrical shape, easy to slice. The roots themselves are a deep, dark red, 6-8” (7-10cm) long, and the texture remains excellent longer than many other varieties. Many gardeners find Forono beets more disease and insect resistant than other varieties, and since the roots are the same size around throughout and can be sliced uniformly, cooks love them! As a bonus, the leaves of this beet are especially tasty. Will grow well in just about any place in Britain and stores well.
