Old Scottish heirloom beet was, until recently, almost extinct--brought back for its distinctive, tender and delicious salad leaves. The leaves are uniquely
long and narrow, incredibly dark ruby red, nearly iridescent purple, with an unusual, silky sheen. The long, cylindrical roots, which reach over 6 inches, are
unusually colored red with overtones toward purple-blue. The dark color translates to increased phytonutrients--among the highest of any beet variety!
