Beetroot is a pretty versatile option for the garden, because in addition to the very healthy root vegetable, it also yields nutritious leaves which can be used for salads, stir-fries, as an addition to your favourite daal and more.
This is a regular red variety with greenish-red leaves. You can harvest leaves selectively while you wait for the beet to develop (in cooler weather), and pluck either baby leaves or mature ones along with their stems.
Likes full sun. Can be grown in large containers (12" deep and 8" wide).
Leave 5-6 leaves on the plant at any point. Late plantings may result in a good harvest of leaves even if the beet does not develop in warmer climates.
