Sweet, tangy, and beautiful inside and out, the Bull’s Blood Beet is a necessity for the salad-loving vegetable gardener. With juicy, blood-red-and-pink roots and deep-red foliage, this entire vegetable is delicious and useful, perfect for salads, roasting, and for bringing color to countless recipes. The Bull’s Blood Beet grows 10-12 inches tall and wide, thriving in full sun, cooler weather, and well-draining, rich soil. In 30-65 days, these flavorful red beauties are ready to harvest. Younger, smaller beets have more flavor, while waiting until beets are larger will make them easier to store and can. 

Bull’s Blood Beet Care  

Bull’s Blood Beets can be sown once the soil temperature has reached about 45°F or greater. Place beet seeds about 1 inch apart to start, thinning to every 3 inches once seedlings are about 2 inches tall. Rows should be about 12 inches apart to ensure each plant has plenty of room and light to grow. If transplanting, take care to not disturb the roots as beet roots are delicate before maturity. 

Growing Bull’s Blood Beet

The Bull’s Blood Beet matures 30-65 days after planting, with beets being more flavorful when harvested at a smaller size. Beets require full sun to grow and can be planted rather densely at only 3 inches apart. It is important to weed the area around beets regularly to ensure that the roots are not being crowded out, allowing them to reach optimal size. 

Beets can be grown easily in containers if given high quality potting soil, adequate room, and plenty of sunlight. The Bull’s Blood Beet has attractive red foliage, allowing it to be used ornamentally as a filler plant if desired. 

Watering Bull’s Blood Beet

Beets prefer evenly moist soil, requiring about 1 inch of water a week and doing best when provided regular water through irrigation. Water the area surrounding the beet until the top few inches are moist, and do not allow the soil to dry out completely. 

Feeding Bull’s Blood Beet 

Ideally, plant beets in nutrient-rich soil that has been mixed with manure or compost. Every 3 weeks, apply an organic fertilizer that is higher in phosphate and potassium and lower in nitrogen.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability).

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
