(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.
