Bull's Blood

60 days  — 'Bull's Blood' is very attractive an commonly grown as an ornamental bedding plant.  Since the tops of this variety are quite tasty, sweet and beautifully colored, they are also harvested when young and tender as a salad "green."  Maturity is about thirty five days for tops and sixty days for the roots.

Introduced by K. Sahin, Zaden B.V. of The Netherlands in 1986.  It was developed by the late seedsman, Kees Sahin (1944-2006) from a selection of the French variety, 'Crapaudine.'  With his background in ornamental plants and flowers, he selected for the darkest color and most attractive plant growth habits.  It is heat resistant.

Each packet contains four grams which is approximately 200 seeds.


After a prolonged illness Kees Sahin passed away in September 2006.  A year later Elisabeth Sahin decided to sell the company to Takii & Co. Ltd. Japan. In August 2008 the head office of K. SAHIN, Zaden B.V. moved to the premises of Takii Europe B.V. in De Kwakel. [Source: K. SAHIN, Zaden B.V. web site, 12/6/11]

Excellent beet variety! Easy to grow.
Excellent beet variety! Easy to grow, each seed yielded two to three small beets to thin. Mature beets are earthy but sweet. Excellent for making beet kvass and pickled beets!
