Red Beet

The market for Red Beet is growing rapidly, not in the least because of the wholesome traits attributed to this colorful crop. We started breeding about five years ago and have since developed three competitive varieties. Breeding for excellent taste, high brix, and strong tops.

Scarlett

Scarlett has an improved quality and shape, shows a more balanced plant and grows less vigorous compared to Jolie. Worth to mention is the shorter cooking time, round shape and an easy skin release; which makes Scarlett a winner for blanching and vacuum packing.
