This variety is well known for its sweet flavor AND for its superior tasting greens! Try the beet greens sauteéd with butter and garlic. Crimson-colored roots have a beautiful ring pattern.

Planting Instructions: Plant beet seeds 1/2"-1" deep, 6-12" apart in spring. One seed produces multiple plants so thin as desired. Cold tolerant.
