What are the pros? Unusually sweet, no stains!

What are the cons? Could be larger!

Review:

This will be my third year planting them. I served these roasted to a die hard beet hater and he could not believe they were beets. Really sweet, roast up wonderfully, good raw grated in salads, no staining. I can't speak to its quality as a pickling beet as no matter how many I grow they get eaten. The greens are not too prolific or large but are nice cooked or raw. An awesome addition to a winter vegetable roast.

Review:

Planted a fall crop and was very pleased. To me, only a very slight difference in flavor and though I love the deep red of a beet, kinda nice to not have red fingers every once in awhile. Greens were really good.

What are the pros? interesting

What are the cons? slightly bitter

Review:

The same exact thing happened to me. I was harvesting my beets today and pulled up a white one. At first I thought it was a turnip, but no purple around the top. Boiled it and skinned it, then cooked it up with some butter, parsley and brown sugar - a tad bitter - not as sweet as others have reviewed, but it was really big so probably should have picked it sooner. Anyway, looks and tastes just like a beet, but white. Interesting surprise!

What are the pros? Total fluke, awesome.

What are the cons? No complaints.

Review:

One of these seeds accidently snuck into another, red beet I ordered (bulls blood, I think). When I pulled it up I wasn't sure at first if it was a turnip or what. So instead of boiling it like I usally do - I fried it and combined it with some leftover collards. After one bite I realize it was NOT a turnip. Delicious beet flavor, but did not discolor everything it was cooked with! I'm ordering this next year! Great beet flavor - NO stains. It's also sweeter than a regular beet, so I think this will be a big hit with the kids. Factory mistake that I ended up loving.... :)
