Beets are best known for their deep, rich color, and the magical ability to stain whatever they come into contact. And while red is the color beets are most famous for, they also come in white, yellow, and variegated colors. Cultivated beets, Beta vulgaris, come from the Amaranth family, formally being included in the Chenopodiaceae family (also called the gooseroot family).
