Beta vulgaris

Beta vulgaris (Chenopodiaceae)

BEETROOT, RED BEET, WHITE BEET, SUGARBEET

Red beetroots are given by herbalists to maintain the body's resistance when lowered by chronic infection. White beetroots are used against jaundice and liver damage caused by drug or alcohol abuse. In Europe, beetroot is taken as an anticancer treatment.

Red sugarbeet has been a prized vegetable since ancient Greece. Rich in sugars, it is made into wine as well as famous soups like borsch. White sugarbeet was bred from the red form. Large bright-green leaves grow on stalks from a short stem, and a central spike with insignificant flowers appears in late summer. The swollen root varies from round to tapered like a carrot.
