Elsoms are delighted to be able to offer an excellent range of beet varieties from Bejo Zaden.
Bejo are specialists in beet breeding and are well-known across the world for their expertise in this area.
The red beet is in fact a well-established world crop. It sits within the top five crops in Bejo’s portfolio and is grown and processed internationally by renowned commercial growers.
This is unsurprising when the quality of the product is taken into account: it’s a strong and reliable range, which offers added value through the great internal colouration, healthy foliage and overall uniformity. The beetroot itself is a particularly healthy vegetable – containing folate and betaine, it helps contribute to the health of the heart and vascular system.
Additionally, all efforts have been made to balance the various needs of those at different stages of the supply chain. Growers want good yields and resistance to pests and diseases; packers and processors want products that are easy to handle; retailers want produce that looks good. Consumers, of course, want beetroot which tastes great. We’re confident that our range of varieties will meet your requirements.
We’re able to offer varieties which are suitable for the fresh bunching, fresh/early pickling and the pickling markets.
Bejo have exciting new varieties too, such as this season’s ‘Avalanche’ white beet variety.
