Bull's Blood has tender, sweet, dark red, almost burgundy foliage. The earliest thinnings spark up spring and fall salads with a leaf color as richly dark red as radicchio. As the roots enlarge, the baby beets are also delicious cooked and mixed with salad. The small sweet red roots are best when harvested young. This plant is native to Europe, Asia, and Mediterranean regions.
