Beets – Beta vulgaris

Sacred to: Aphrodite

 

Myth: Aphrodite is said to have eaten Beets to retain her beauty

 

Myth 2: The Oracle at Delphi claimed that beetroots are worth their weight in silver, second only to horseradish in mystic potency.

 

Other Notes: It was so appreciated by the ancients, that it is recorded that it was offered on silver to Apollo in his temple at Delphi.
