Gathering time for root vegetable (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

beet

(Other definitions for beet that I've seen before include "Crop plant, sugar source", "Sugar-yielding root", "Root, maybe source of sugar", "E.g. chard, mangelwurzel", "Genus of plant with succulent root".)

I've seen this clue in The Independent.
