Beet, Bull's Blood

90% of 100

50 days. A delicious and beautiful multipurpose beet that is blood red to deep purple in color from its leaves down to its roots. The antioxidant-rich leaves are a highly regarded gourmet addition to salads, especially when harvested in the baby stage. (Baby leaves are ready to pick in just 35 days from sowing.) The sweet, earthy roots are equally delectable. This is the best variety for microgreens and will top your meals with a welcome burst of color. This illustrious heirloom was selected in 1986 by Kees Sahin, a Dutch seed breeder who used the ancient Crapaudine beet as a parent.
