Great tasting beet!

Good germination in spring, ok germination in summer. These beets are delicious! I also planted the Touchstone Gold beets and my whole family preferred the taste of these. They were sweeter.

Great germination rate and good tasting beet. I used to not like beets but after making them fresh from the garden, I’m hooked and planting a fall crop!

Always works

Just stick the seeds in loosened ground, and watch. They are, in my experience, the only dependable beet. Taste is great. You stick the seed in the ground anytime you remember. Winter, spring, summer or fall (but very early spring is best.)

I ordered these last year for the first time and we had such a bumper crop! The germination was excellent and the yield fantastic. We ate them fresh as well as canned several pints. I highly recommend them.
