    I haven't had much luck with beetroot the last two years, probably because I'm the only one that likes it, and I don't prioritise it. I complimented a fellow plot holder on his crop and he promptly pulled me a handful.

    Took 'em home, roasted them in their skins, peeled and chopped for the freezer for my lunches. Slightly reduced portion sizes, because one or two pieces fell into my mouth by accident.

    I nearly wept, they tasted so good!

    I find the best flavour to be from the darkest, reddest beetroots. Orange, white, Chioggia etc just don't have it.

    I found Chioggia to be very disappointing - doesn't even look as nice as the seed packet photo. I've stopped growing that one.
    I made the mistake of making beetroot and apple chutney using Chioggia it turned out an unappetising pale pink colour resembling the luncheon meat I used to eat as a kid

    started a topic Beetroot trial

    Beetroot trial

    One of our favourite things I grow over the allotment is beetroot. As different varieties have different flavours and colourations, We have decided on a taste trial.

    Five of each variety all grown in the same bed.

    Each given an overall mark out of 10.

    Boltardy - 5
    Choggia - 2
    Moulin Rouge - 4
    Red Hawk - 6
    Betollo - 9

    We still have a number of varieties to try but they were sown later....so far Betollo is our favourite
