Beets are herbaceous biennial or, rarely, perennial plants. The leaves are simple and the petals or the sepals are fused into a cup or tube. The roots are most commonly deep red-purple in colour. Beets may be cooked for use as vegetables, pickled, added to salads, or made into the classic soup known as borscht. In Turkey, it is used as a medicinal herb by diabetic patients. The leaves are high in vitamin A and minerals including calcium, iron, potassium, and magnesium. Beetroots are high in magnesium and manganese, with some vitamin C.
