Beta vulgaris

HEIRLOOM This is the beet that fell in love with a mason jar! A consistent producer for canning, juicing, pickling, or roasting. Burgundy globe-shaped roots with bright green leaves and little zoning.
Oh the humble beet! As sweet as candy, literally since a lot of U.S. sugar comes from beets, this vegetable will find its way to the table in so many ways – roasted, boiled, raw, pickled, sautéed, pureed in soups, juiced, and dehydrated. Roots will store for 1-4 months without the tops, bringing the dinner table bright nutritious food in the middle of winter. Of course, the greens are delicious too and can be cooked just like spinach or chard. Nutrients: dietary fiber, vitamins A, C, B6, thiamine, riboflavin, folate, niacin, iron, potassium, manganese, magnesium, and phosphorus.

    Grew these summer 2015. Soil not the best but the beets grew well and were the sweetest, best tasting beets I have grown.

    Very dependable beet. We’ve tried other varieties, but none compare to the taste and production of Detroit Dark Reds!
