(Beta vulgaris) Heirloom, first introduced in the mid 1840's and originating from Italy. Nicknamed the 'Candycane Beet'. Slightly flattened root with dark red outer skin and alternating pink & white rings inside. Does not 'bleed' like other varieties. Quick growing; tolerates heat & drought well. Excellent sweet flavour even when mature. Good for using fresh, cooked or pickled. Good for cool areas. 50-65 days. 200 seeds
DID YOU KNOW: Each beetroot seed is actually a cluster of embryo's that can produce potentially from 3-5 plants. This could be the reason for a number of plants appearing in the one spot.
