Root Rainbow Medley

The Gourmet Beets Five Color Rainbow is a vibrant assortment of beet cultivars, originating from the Mediterranean and Eastern Europe and belonging to the Beta vulgaris species. This unique blend offers a visual feast with a palette of different colored roots, adding a delightful touch to culinary creations and garden landscapes alike.

These beets present an aesthetic wonder with their diverse array of hues, ranging from deep crimson and golden-yellow to candy-striped, white, and vibrant orange. Beyond their ornamental appeal, these roots offer a mild, earthy flavor with varying degrees of sweetness, depending on the color variation.

The Five Color Rainbow beets showcase different tastes. While the red and candy-striped beets offer a classic beet flavor with earthy notes, the golden-yellow and white variants present a milder, sweeter taste. The orange beets often display a slightly tangy and sweet flavor, adding diversity to dishes and salads.

When planting these beets from seed, specific growing conditions are essential. Begin by sowing seeds directly into well-drained soil about 1/2 inch deep and spaced approximately 2 inches apart. Ensure the planting area receives full sun exposure for at least 6 hours a day, fostering healthy growth and vibrant root colors.

Consistent moisture is vital during the germination phase and throughout the growing season. Mulching helps retain moisture and regulates soil temperature. These beets thrive in cool weather and are suitable for both spring and fall planting, allowing for multiple harvests, and they're rich in nutrients, making them a colorful and flavorful addition to various dishes.

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.
