Bulls Blood Beet (30 days to leaf. 65 days to beet.)

Bulls Blood is an heirloom beet from 1840 primarily grown for its tender, sweet, deep red-burgundy foliage, but the beets are tasty when harvested at the 2 to 3-inch size.

Bulls Blood glossy magenta leaves can reach 16 inches high, but we pick them earlier for an excellent spinach substitute. No oxalic acid taste at all. Bulls Blood is the beet for "beet greens".

Bulls Blood is often grown as an ornamental, and its dark leaves contrast nicely with other plantings especially silver or yellow. We eat the smaller leaves in fresh salads and share the larger leaves with the chickens/rabbits!

Do not let people tell you this is not an edible beet! Bulls blood makes nice pickling beet when picked early/small. We cut them up into small bits, add sweet onion, apple cider vinegar, a touch of honey and some water. Pop the whole mix in the fridge and add to salads or eat alone as a tangy treat! I'm guilty of eating them all before the salad is ready! My red fingers are the giveaway!
