Selection from the very old French variety " Rouge Crapaudine", which originates from 1840. Bull's Blood has the darkest crimson leaf colour that has ever been seen, and the beet itself is also very dark with a deliciously, full, old-fashioned, sweet taste. Sow in well fertilized soil and not too thickly. Once the plants are 3 cm tall thin out to approx. 10 cm. With these, too, harvest on time, otherwise they get too thick and coarse. Keeps reasonably well.
