Often called red beet in the USA. Rande (sing.; Randen is plural) is always deep red; other beet varieties have different names in Swiss German (including Swiss "High German"). In Standard German: rote Beete.

It is Randen , my favourite sort of salad. Simply treat it by olive oil and a bit of vinagar and that is enough. Der Randen is the mountain range just north of Schaffhausen, which geologically is a part of the Jura mountains. The Germans, in ignorance of the fact that some 60% plus of this mountain range is on German territory (Klettgau area = Chlättgi in SH-German), call it by the silly name Rote Beete
