Early Blood Turnip-rooted beet
This is one of the oldest surviving varieties of table beet, originally introduced in America around 1820. The beet has very dark, violet-red flesh with striking lighter rings. The dark red flesh remains flavorful, tender and juicy even when the beets grow large. Eaten raw the beet has an apple-like, slightly astringent flavor with a rich, earthy finish. The beet is good both boiled and baked and the leaves are an excellent cooked green. It is a superb winter storage variety, keeping well in root cellar storage for 8 months or more. Variable rate of maturity may make this beet less desirable for commercial harvest (and this may explain its disappearance from seed catalogs in the latter 20th century), however this characteristic is a plus for the small farmer and home gardener.
