Product Description
General Information

- For the first time beetroot are mentioned in the documents from Babylonia from 722 BC. About 400 BC beets were grown in Greece, and 200 years later they reached the area of the Roman republic. During the times of Charles the Great, and for the rest of the Middle Ages, beetroot was grown as a deciduous vegetable in France and Italy, and in Germany from the 12th century. In the fifteenth century, the red beet variety went to Italy. In 1583 several varieties cultivated at the time were described for the first time in a scientific manner. In 1753, Karol Linnausz described all species and subspecies of beets and gave them Latin names, valid until today.
