RED RUBY

« Back

RED RUBY is a more vigorous Blush selection, suitable for year round inclusion in salad mixes. RED RUBY has an intense, deep red colour on both the upper-side and under-side of the leaf, setting it apart from ‘Bulls Blood’ style beets. The high vigour of RED RUBY ensures faster and more even harvesting and the thick leaf ensures good weight while a slight cupping at maturity ensures bulk when used as a bagged product.
