BEETROOT - Beta Vulgaris - 140 Premium Non Gmo Seeds
Beetroot Boltardy: This variety has a very sweet flavour and is delicious in salads, can be pickled or enjoyed when made into a vegetarian, plant-based beetroot ‘burger’. Red beets have the cancer-fighting compound betacyanin. Being naturally rich in nitrates and betalin compounds, beetroot can also lower blood pressure and improve digestive health.

Sow/Plant Outside: March - July; Flowers/Harvest: June - October
This multigerm variety has excellent bolt-resistance.
Young leaves are edible and can be cooked like spinach
