Like most vegetables, beets come in a variety of colours. We grow **. Both the roots and their greens are edible.
Storage - separate the greens about an inch above the roots once you get them home and store them separately. The leaves will only keep for a few days; wrap them loosely within barely damp paper towels and refrigerate in an plastic bag. Keep the roots loosely wrapped in an open plastic bag in the fridge for up to 4 weeks.
