Beta vulgaris var cicla
Fantastic looking beet with stems of many colours - yellow, gold, pink, crimson and more. A cool plant for kids' gardens! Hardy biennial with leaves for use like silver beet or spinach - cook only briefly to retain colour. Plants are more compact than standard silverbeet and are perfect for growing in pots, in vege plots with limited space, or where you simply don't have the appetite for a huge crop of standard silverbeet! Abundant crops over a long period - in fact if flowering stems are pinched out and the plant is not allowed to flower the plants can remain perennial for several years. Punnet of 6 plants.
