The elongated 5-6" roots of this Danish variety resemble a carrot in shape, which allows gardeners to plant its seeds closer together than globe-shaped beet varieties. The edible roots can be sliced into uniform round slices and have an enticing fine-grained texture. Additionally, this easy-to peel beet has sweet dark-red flesh that’s free from rings, making this variety an excellent choice for pickling, baking, roasting, and steaming. 46-80 days. ±2,300 seeds/oz.
