The Brilliance of Beetroot E


xtremely versatile, used both in savoury and sweet cooking, beetroot was fi rst cultivated by the Romans for its nutritional value and medicinal purposes. Belonging to the same family as chard and spinach, both the leaves and roots of this earthy vegetable are edible.


Otherwise known as beta vulgaris, beetroot is an incredible source of nutrients packed full of vitamins A and C, iron and calcium, as well as being a brilliant source of fi bre, manganese, folic acid and potassium.


Beetroot is extremely easy to grow in any garden or allotment as it requires very little treatment in the way of pesticides. Sown in early May, beetroot is traditionally ready for harvest in sunny July but off ers a lengthy season that rolls into October.
