Item Details

Winner of our 2015 beet evaluation for taste. White- and yellow-ringed roots measure 4-6½" long and vary in shape. While mangel and fodder beets are larger than typical beets and were traditionally used for animal feed, you’ll find the sweet, juicy, and smooth-textured roots are prime for the dinner table and not just the barnyard. Seed Savers Exchange’s seed stock was originally acquired from Dr. Alan Kapuler of Peace Seeds in the 1980s. 65-100 days.

Grows Well, Produces Mild Beets

by

I grew these in Cincinnati (zone 6b). After direct sowing in late April, the greens took off right away. They were harvested throughout August without bolting, as it is a biennial vegetable. Their flavor is mild, not very "beety" and I think best consumed roasted with skin. When cooked in stews, they lose their color entirely and end up looking like potatoes. The greens were enjoyed as well, sauteed with oil and spices.
