Low Calorie Root Vegetable

While beetroot, a.k.a. beets, have been around for centuries, the first beets were actually harvested for their greens instead of their roots as early as the 4th century. Native to the Mediterranean, beets are a relatively quick-growing crop and can be harvested 50-70 days after sowing seeds. They do best in temperate climates and prefer soil that is loamy or well-worked and allows room for the root to move and grow. Beets grow best in cool weather when the daytime temperatures don’t peak above 70 ℉.
