Product Overview

Beta vulgaris

Add bright color and nutrition to your salad with the beautiful, deep red leaf tops and the dark red, tender roots.

Sow one row for the beautiful greens, and another row for the delicious roots! 'Bull's Blood' is valued for its tender, sweet, dark red, almost burgundy foliage. Selected from a French heirloom for the darkest colored leaves, the 16" "greens" rival chard and spinach for delectability and nutritional content. The roots are also quite tasty when harvested small. Beets are excellent for mild climates where multiple crops are possible.

Variety Info

Dark red roots are 2"–3" in diameter and may have candy-striped zoning throughout the interior. 'Bulls Blood' is an excellent variety for the small, tender, beautifully colored tops that are tasty in salads. Burgundy leaf tops are most tender at baby green size. Dark red roots are sweet and flavorful.

Sowing Inside

Not recommended. Root disturbance delays maturity.

Sowing Outside

RECOMMENDED. 2 to 4 weeks before your average last frost date, when soil temperature is at least 45°F, ideally 60°–85°F, for early summer crop. 6 to 8 weeks before your average first fall frost date for late summer/fall crop. Mild Climates: Sow fall through winter.
