Beta vulgaris
This print is a fine art, signed, numbered & limited to 150 copies print, from a botanical watercolor original. Beet is the common name resulting from the contraction of "bette" (vegetable leaf) and "rave", which was called in the middle ages any garden plant which one consumes the root. It was the British who were the first to put beetroot on their tables. Long shunned in France by the bourgeoisie and the aristocracy, because considered a food of poor quality. It's around the half of the 19th century that the consumption of beets has developed, in France and across Europe
