Is a Beetroot, beetroot is a large red and fleshy root that is grouped as a vegetable.
When I was young my father used to bring the beetroot and I used to wonder what kind of a 'fruit' that was. One day I got so curious and I asked him what this mysterious 'fruit' was since I was young and couldn't understand what it was he did not tell me in detail what it was. Now that am grown I came to know that it is not a 'fruit' but a very nutritious vegetable.
