Easy to grow even at home, it has a beautiful red color, a gentle and uniform spindle shape making it suitable for baking and other edible purposes. Its skin is red while the inside is yellowish-white. The cut ends produce a large amount of jalapin, a white resin-like substance. In 1990, beni-otome was designated as a Kagoshima recommended variety.
