DESCRIPTION

One of the best varieties for flavorful greens! Sweet, fast growing, early-producing. Heart-shaped, 3-4" medium-size dark red skin and a deep red flesh with slightly lighter zones. 18" tall tops. Use in lieu of spinach, kale or chard. Since the roots develop and mature over an extended period, there's no need to successively sow seeds.

CLASSIFICATIONS
OPEN POLLINATED

Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.

HEIRLOOM

This variety has a history of being passed down within a family or community, similar to the generational sharing of certain items like jewelry or furniture.
