Welcome to Heritage Harvest Seed!
Early Blood Turnip Seed is a very historic heirloom that is one of the oldest beets still in cultivation. One of the main reasons that it has had such immense popularity is that it was very tolerant of a wide variety of climates. Fearing Burr (Field and Garden Vegetables of America, 1865) stated that "The Early Blood Turnip Beet succeeds well from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico; and in almost every section of the United States is more esteemed, and more generally cultivated for early use, than any other variety." The Early Blood Turnip Beet is said to be one of the parents of the well known Detroit Red Beet. This is an excellent beet with red flesh, often having paler red rings inside. A great all purpose beet. EXTREMELY RARE.
Early Blood Turnip Seed has 50 seeds per packet.
