Beta vulgaris (subspecies maitima)
White, yellow, red and pink stems that add vibrant colour to the veggie patch and plate.
Grows and produces abundantly all year. One year old plants will go to seed in the Spring and need replacing. If you have the space allow them to go to seed and you'll have new plants popping up all over the place.
Full to part sun, in well drained soil. They will suffer in the hotter months so will appreciate additional watering. Mulching heavily helps.
