1103-CO Beta vulgaris

(Baby greens, tops, roots) 30 days baby leaf, 60 days roots.

Bull’s Blood is a great choice for those who want to diversify their se-lection of spring greens with a little splash of deep, burgundy red. Our res-taurant clients used to ask for this guy by name! When we first planted Bull’s Blood, we were amazed at the most vi-brant, deep maroon, shiny leaves that tasted so sweet on a cold November’s eve. Old heritage variety from about 1840, when beets were more commonly referred to as “blood turnips.”

LE SANG DU TAUREAU (!) (Petits collets («Baby greens»), fanes) petits collets obtenus en 30 jours, racines produites en 60 jours.  Voici un choix formidable pour ceux et celles qui cherchent à diversifier leur sélection de verts printaniers avec une petite infusion de rouge bourgogne profond en sus. Nos clients propriétaires de restaurants nous demandent pour la «Bull’s Blood» en particulier maintenant!  Nous l’avons semé en fin d’automne dans notre tunnel énorme pour une éventuelle dégustation lors d’une aube froide en novembre, et ont été épatés par ses feuilles marrons luisantes à goût si sucré.  Une ancienne variété patrimoniale datant d’environ 1840,  les betteraves furent souvent dénommés par le terme «blood turnips», soit des navets ensanglantés.
