Beetroot 'Subeto' F1 Hybrid - Deep, rich, purple-red roots with purple stems and green leaves.

Beetroot 'Boldor' - A vibrant globe variety with yellow flesh and an orange outer skin. The yellow stems contrast nicely with the bright green leaves.

Beetroot 'Chioggia' - A striking globe variety with red-pink skin and an appealing 'bullseye' formation of red and white rings on the inside fading to soft pink when cooked. Pink stems.

Beetroot 'Albina Vereduna' - Pure white roots with superb flavour, and pale green stems.

Beetroot 'Bull's Blood Scarletta' - A striking variety with dark burgundy-purple leaves, stems and outer skins. When cut open, roots are cerise pink with attractive concentric rings.
