Due to its vibrant, deep red colour, Bull’s blood beet is a popular choice for chefs and foodies alike. Beetroot can be a more challenging microgreen to grow due to it’s hard inedible seed hull which needs to be removed before consuming.
It’s bright neon pink stem turns dark red as it matures making it one of the most attractive microgreens you’ll want to keep on your windowsill. Beet greens are highly nutritious with a distinctive earthy flavor, and crunchy yet juicy texture.
We don’t recommend sprouting beet seeds in a jar due to it’s tough seed hull
