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.
