Hello everybody , we have been harvesting Beetroot this week for pickling and pulled up a white Beetroot , never seen one before
wonder if this had happened to anybody else , have pickled it not sure what it will taste like
also notice another one which we left
White beetroot (and yellow and stripey ones for that matter) taste like beetroot
I think that now that more different varieties are being grown, the chance of the occasional seed getting stuck in the packing machinery and slipping into the next batch is bound to happen.
One of Gardening's little happen-stances You may find that you prefer them and buy those seeds next year .....
I'm growing a mixture of colours this year and cooked one red and one white to contrast the other day. I preferred the white one, which was sweeter, but OH preferred the red one which had a stronger taste.
I had a rogue white in last year's lot. Delicious. And a ringed ones too, come to think of it.
