What colour is this?

The last of the beets from Dad's garden. They looked like jewels when we had our Thanksgiving dinner.

Everyone knows that beets are beet red, but what colour is that?  The dinner guests suggested red,  burgundy, or purple.

I used my 3-in-1 Color Tool by Joen Wolfrom to check.   As close as I can tell, beets are a shade (pure colour plus black) of either fuschia or magenta.  Which places them about halfway between red and violet on the colour wheel. 

So now we know!
