CHERRY BLOOD is dark red beet suitable for inclusion in salad mixes. CHERRY BLOOD is coloured on both sides of the leaf making it ideal for pillow packs where a small number of leaves gives a strong colour effect. A sisterline to Blush, CHERRY BLOOD has slightly less vigour in the cold but shows even stronger tolerance to Pseudomonas than Blush during periods of high pressure such as late Summer/early Autumn.
