Description

Beet - Bull's Blood - Beta vulgaris (Crassa group)

Biennial Heirloom. Maturity to beet root in 55-60 and to baby leaf tops in 35 days. Exceptionally beautiful dark red-violet tops with sweeter flavor and heat resistance. This variety was selected for the darkest colored leaves from the French variety Crapaudine.

Did You Know? One beet has only 35 calories and is high in folic acid (especially important for pregnant women).

Soil & Water: Beets are easily grown, though they prefer deep, loose soil and even, moderate water. Mulch once established to protect the roots from heat.

Planting & Growing: Soak seeds for at least 12 hours before planting to promote germination. Space 2" for greens, 3" for summer harvest beets, and 4" for storage growing beets. Tolerates light shade.

Harvesting & Storage: For best flavor, harvest roots while they are 1"-3". To minimize moisture loss in the roots, twist off the greens. Roots store well in humid, cool conditions. Greens should be eaten within 1 or 2 days of picking.

Very Delicious

Sprouted 8 beet seeds using a pellet seed tray then transported to my yard in late January, 3 weeks after they sprouted. Harvested three beats at the end of March. There were so delicious. My little girls loved them as well. They particularly loved how the red color stained their fingers and lips.

Was able to harvest all summer

I planted a whole raised bed of these in early spring and was able to harvest all summer long. They never became woody or tough. They are delicious roasted and for Borscht.

Tasty Beet

I don't like beets and I liked this beet. It is very sweet with the minimal "dirt" flavor that I found so objectionable in most beets. It has good size and was easy to grow.
