Details

The most popular, old standard, all-purpose beet from 1892. These perfectly round 3" beets have striking deep red flesh that's incredibly sweet and tasty. Baby beets make excellent eating, and harvesting them helps promote the growth of the remaining beets. Ideal for fresh eating, boiling, pickling, canning, baking, and freezing.
