Beets

A beet is the tubular root of the beet plant, both of which the green and the root is edible. The Garden variety of beet, which we consume, is the Beta vulgaris. (The original beets were long and bulky, resembling the Greek letter “B”, or Beta). There are over a dozen varieties of beets. The most common variety is the red/purple variety. Beets also come in red, purple, orange, yellow, tan and white varieties.
