Great producer and wonderful light flavor -- great roasted with other root vegetables!

Good flavor, a little small, but will buy again.


I bought this beet after trying some golden beets from our local grocery store. I've never been a big fan of red beets, I don't care for that earthy note that they have, but I think the biggest thing I don't like about them is that they turn everything you cook them with red. Which can be very off-putting for young children

These grew very well in my garden in Kansas, just make sure they have good water and decent mulching. They were a little bit smaller than other beat varieties I have grown, but their flavor was quite good, and since they are smaller, I have had good success with growing them closer together without lowering yields.

I found them to be very tasty when roasted, pan-fried, or chopped up and put into stews. A slightly sweet note, without that dirt taste that you often get with red beets.
