Beet Root

The common garden Beet is a plant we all know and some of us love for the deep red tuber greens that taste similar to spinach. The cultivation of Beets dates all the way back to the 8th century B.C. in the Mediterranean and has hybridized for different growth characteristics. Different kinds of Chard are related to Beets, grown for their leaves as well as the Sugar Beet, which began being cultivated commercially in Germany in the 18th century when it was discovered that it had a very high sucrose content and was a great source for table sugar. All the various cultures that have ever cultivated Beets prized them for their nutritive and medicinal properties. In Eastern Europe, Beet Soup known as borscht is very common.
