  2. It's a chioggia beet, also called bulls eye beet. I love the look of this heirloom variety.

  3. WOW! Taste the same? I thought maybe it was a beet crossed with a radish!

  4. Becky, cooked it tastes just like a regular red beet. There are lots of heirloom beet varieties that are really beautiful. Here are some of them: http://sustainableseedco.com/Heirloom-Beet-Seeds
