Beetroot 'Rainbow Beet' (Globe)
Grow a kaleidoscope of five different beetroot colours for your salads this year with 'Rainbow Beetroot' seeds.
Visually stunning 5 variety beetroot mixture - the colours of the outer skins, sliced flesh and contrasting shades of stems and leaves are amazing! And so is the flavour. Just wash young roots, peel and slice raw into salads for tasty crunch and colour. The tender stems and leaves make excellent salad ingredients too, or can be steamed and eaten like spinach or chard. 'Baby' roots are ideal for pickling, whilst mature roots can be steamed and enjoyed in a variety of dishes. Collection Includes: Subeto F1, Boldor, Chioggia, Albina vereduna and Bulls Blood Scarletta.
