Our current beet assortment detailed here includes a range of different leaves for which we have seed in stock that meets our high quality standards in relation to germination and purity.
BLUSH is a dark red beet with excellent uniformity and colour. For the production of deep red beet leaves, BLUSH has improved depth of colour and retains this colour during warmer production periods. The greater uniformity of leaves in relation to shape and size means BLUSH is a reliable inclusion for salad mixes. Suitable for year round production. BLUSH has good vigour consistently producing high yields of attractive, sweet tasting leaves. Like Ruby Lips the red colour will deepen under cooler conditions.
CHERRY BLOOD is dark red beet suitable for inclusion in salad mixes. CHERRY BLOOD is coloured on both sides of the leaf making it ideal for pillow packs where a small number of leaves gives a strong colour effect. A sisterline to Blush, CHERRY BLOOD has slightly less vigour in the cold but shows even stronger tolerance to Pseudomonas than Blush during periods of high pressure such as late Summer/early Autumn.
RED RUBY is a more vigorous Blush selection, suitable for year round inclusion in salad mixes with a particular advantage in the cool and cold due to extra vigour. RED RUBY has an intense, deep red colour on both the upper-side and under-side of the leaf. The high vigour of RED RUBY ensures faster and more even harvesting and the thick leaf ensures good weight while a slight cupping at maturity ensures bulk when used as a bagged product.
