As a source of both tender greens and brightly coloured, fleshy edible roots, beets are a welcome addition to any garden.
The globular, dark red roots of this aptly named variety are tender and delicious. It is quick to mature so you can harvest then replant the area with other more heat-loving vegetables. A favourite variety for greens.

Beets grow best and colour is the most intense in the cooler temperatures of late spring and early summer. Overwatering or excessive rainfall may lead to excessive leaf growth and pale or small roots. Beets can also be grown in containers.
