Fun Facts!

  • Gold Beets

    Gold beets have been enjoyed since Ancient Roman times, and it’s no wonder — they have a delicious hint of sweetness to them. In fact, they are the largest source of natural sugar, next to sugarcane itself. They range from yellow to orange, and you can eat them from root to top. Besides looking cool, beets are packed with nutrients including potassium, beta carotene and folic acid. Hey, that’s pretty sweet!

  • Red Beets

    Red beets are used in cuisines all over the world — from borscht soup in Russia to spiced beets in India. Thanks to their deep crimson hue, beet juice has been used to dye fabric for centuries – make sure you wear gloves when cooking so your hands don’t change to a red color. Red beets are so sweet, they taste great as a dessert. Forget red velvet, how does a beet cupcake sound? Sign us up!

  • Romaine

    Unlike most lettuces, Romaine is heat-tolerant, making it a popular choice for farmers to grow year-round. In the UK, this lettuce variety is called “Cos” lettuce – it’s said to have originated on the island of Cos in the Aegean Sea. Thanks to the Greeks, we have lettuce loaded with plenty of the good stuff we love – antioxidants, vitamin A, vitamin K, folate, dietary fiber and others. Wow – how’s that for healthy?

  • Lacinato Kale

    Lacinato kale is a popular leafy green that has been cultivated for more than 6,000 years. The Lacinato variety grows up to three feet tall and comes from Tuscany, a famous wine region in Italy. It’s also known as dinosaur kale for a reason. Feel the leaves, and you’ll think of dinosaur skin! It has 100 percent of the daily value of vitamins A and K in a single one-cup serving. Now that’s something to roar about, don’t you think?
