Description

Beta vulgaris

This beetroot’s claim to fame are the beautiful concentric rings that alternate between bright red and white. When cooked, the roots have a mild, earthy flavour typical of beetroot, but the rings disappear, leaving behind an attractive pink colour. It is not bolt-resistant, so delay sowing until the warmer weather of late spring and early summer.
