Product Description

A unique long and cylindrical beet gives 3 to 4 times more uniform slices than round beets. Sweet, dark red roots are 8" long, 1 3/4" across. GROWING HINTS: Baby beets make excellent eating, and harvesting them helps the remaining beets grow better. When planting, mix beet seeds with fast-sprouting radish seeds to mark the rows. Grows best in full sun.

60 days to maturity.

Note: These are provided as plant starts which are started indoors or in a greenhouse. Flats contain 12 plants each and will need to be transplanted into the garden. This is a great way to get a head start on growing beets. You can also sow seeds in the garden for a later crop of beets.

These are a CGS favorite. Easy to slice or use grater and add to salads or other meals. You can also add the baby leafs to salads, use for juicing etc.
