A favorite in the Netherlands, and you'll discover why when you grow it. Roots are firm and sweet with remarkable flavor producing very dark red juice when cooked; thus the name. This unusual heirloom has dark purple leaves that are used as baby-leaf greens in salads. Harvest tender greens in about 35 days. Plants are moderately vigorous, and this is a yielder.
