beet is juremitxa
Word derivation for "beet":
Basque = erremolatxa (similar to Spanish remolacha)
Finnish = juurikas (also punajuurikas, where puna means red)
Miresua = juremitxa
Here's another lengthy vegetable word. As in Finnish, the j is pronounced like consonantal y. As in Basque, the tx is pronounced like ch.
I'm a gardener and I grow vegetables, including beets.
