The ancestor of modern cultivated beets is called the sea beet and it prospered all along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. This ancient food was eaten widely and archaeologists have uncovered remains in Egypt dated to 2600BC. The remains of this ancient plant are still evident in the crop grown commercially today where farmers are required to feed the plant with boron, an element found in coastal soil.
