Organic Beet Seeds
Famous for their color, beet seeds will produce an entirely edible vegetable. Beets were traditionally grown for their bulbous root, however, all parts of the beet plant can be eaten and enjoyed. Tender beet greens can begin being harvested when thinning a row of beets. Then, as the remaining beet plants mature, the leafy portion can be boiled or steamed, with a similar taste and texture to spinach. The beet root itself can be enjoyed in a variety of culinary fashions.
