Have you ever had Baby Bull’s Blood Beets? These beets are the only variety with red roots, stems, and leaves. The roots are tender when young with a rich, earthy, sweet flavor. When young, the leaves are sweet and tend to become increasingly bitter with age. Bull’s Blood beets are harvested when young for their beet greens to be used in salads.

Season: These are available year-round.

How to store: Store the leaves in a separate plastic bag and use within two days. Also bag the root bulb and store in the refrigerator crisper drawer for 7 to 10 days. Do not trim the tail.
