I appear to have grown a white "Boltardy" beetroot. The others are all a normal colour. Is this common? I have not eaten it yet in case I have grown a rarity!
LOL muddy feet. I don't know, but what are you going to do with it if it is rare? It will have to be eaten at some point surely.
Sell the seeds to highest bidder!
Aah, Totally understand now!
You can buy White beetroot seeds. Have grown them, but find them far too sweet for our taste.
They are a bit weird as they taste like beetroot - but white. Also come in yellow!
Thank you for your replies. Will let you know how it tastes.
I got two white ones at the weekend from my boltardy sowing.. boiled them up and if you closed your eyes you could not tell the difference. Got my seed from T&M maybe the batch got contaminated with white ones.. could tell it was not going to be purple though as the leaves had no red veins either.
