Rwanda beetroot (a part of Beta vulgaris genus) is the culinary taproot of the beet plant. It has many uses, many of which being food-related. It also makes food colors and produces medicine for fever and constipation treatment. Both the leaves and roots are edible.

Though a relatively new venture in this country in the Great Lakes region, beetroot is gaining recognition and many farmers are embracing it. Particular areas like Busoga in the Northern Province are taking steps to produce the crop in large-scale. The beet fruit is the source of a red type of wine that the locals call karisimbi.

We source Rwanda beetroot from family growers with an average of 1 to 2 acres of land. Most of these come from Musanze district in the Northern Province where the cultivation of the crop has caught up. They enrich the soil with farmyard manure and do not apply chemical sprays.
We do the harvesting of Rwanda beetroot after 50 to 70 days from the planting date. This is the time when the leaves will have attained a length of 6 inches. The farm workers uproot it by taking hold of the leaves and edging off the shallowly clinging bulbs from the ground. In cases where the soil is firm and rocky, our workers come armed with hoes and forks to make uprooting easier.
We then clean Rwanda beetroot by applying a dry brush on their surfaces. If the corms are quite dirty, we use a little amount of purified water to clean them. We then dry them in the sun. We then sort the corms by size, firmness, vibrant color and bruise-free skin. We discard the rest which has blemishes.
We pack Rwanda beetroot in various forms ranging from produce crates to trays, bags, and cartons. Our produce boxes come with polyethylene linings in their interiors to maintain freshness of the produce. We offer basic weight capacity of 11.3 kilograms. We also have double that measure at 22.6 kilograms for the largest packages. We touch off the packing phase by attaching self-adhesive produce labels of the name of the produce, its packing date, the net weight, country of origin and company logo.
Alternatively, you may also ask for beet leaves. We provide them in herb cartons in bundles of between 5 and eight pieces. Each carton can hold between 6 and 12 bundles at a go. We help prolong the shelf life of the beets by placement of top ice inside the cartons.
