Cylindra Beet: Very sweet!  Much sweeter than a regular beet, with a richer and smoother flavor, like butter.  This is our favorite beet.

Golden Beet: A milder version of classic earthy sweetness of beets.  Beautiful color, great in on its own or mixed with other beets.

Chioggia Beet: This was the beet that turned us into beet lovers.  Also sweeter than regular beets, although not as dramatically so as the Cylindra.  Chioggia beets have the lovely red and white stripes which give you a little break from the the red staining, although they do still bleed a bit.
