RUBY LIPS

« Back

RUBY LIPS is a red-leaved beet variety that is a popular inclusion to salad mix products. The deep purple/red colour provides an excellent colour contrast for green dominated salad mixes.  RUBY LIPS can be grown year round but is best suited to cool season production where the leaf colour will be enhanced under conditions of cool temperatures and high light intensity. A reliable variety that grows well under a wide range of growing conditions.
