Item Details

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.

Our Favorite Beet of All Times!

by

I've grown Cylindra beets for many years and totally love the taste, ability to harvest and eat the total plant and the shape that allows for closer planting in limited space. In the Pacific NW, leaf borers love my beet greens as much as I do but I have found that a wire frame over them covered with cheesecloth keeps all the bugs at bay and my leaf crop is flawless. The beets are the best tasting I've found, the skins slip off very easily after steaming till tender and the sweetness is unbeatable. I plan to leave some in-ground this winter under mulch to see if we can harvest throughout the winter.
