Beetroot is a kitchen garden plant grown for its roots. It comes from the Mediterranean coasts where it still grows wild today. In ancient times it spread eastwards. Beetroot only became popular in the mid-19th century when gardeners could find seeds for improved varieties on the market. Several regions in France grow fabulous beetroot varieties. PONTHIER selected a particularly high quality variety from Rhone-Alpes. The area enjoys a moderately damp climate, lots of sun on a light, fresh and deep soil rich in humus.
