Albina Ice Beetroot Seeds

[55 days] An albino-style beetroot with ivory-white flesh and skin, these beets are particularly good in any dish that calls for beets, but wants a lighter, milder flavour (think fish or poultry dishes). Our favourite uses are raw in salads, roasted, or pickled. You can also eat the greens—they taste like spinach when steamed or sautéed.

Bonus: these beets will not bleed or turn your hands or other dish ingredients red.
