What are the pros? prolofic and tender

Review:

I planted 2 4-ft rows, and was eating beets all summer. These beets were wonderful roasted with a little salt and olive oil or fried in butter. They never got woody or tough. Tasty greens, steamed and dressed with a touch of honey and vinegar. I will grow these every year!

Could it Be...An Allergy
Easy to Grow 2.5
EarlyMaturity 2.5
 

What are the pros? Great taste!

What are the cons? Poor germination.

Review:

I have never eaten these without first cooking,and won't after reading the reviews. Be careful, folks who experienced itchy, burning throats after eating raw beets; it sounds like an allergic reaction. You might want to discuss it with your physician.

What are the pros? grew fine, lovely colors

What are the cons? beware throat sensitivity

Review:

I'm reviewing these to warn that there are some people who suffer a very sore throat after eating these raw. They taste great, grew well, are beautiful to look at, and, from what I can tell, no problem for most people to eat. But I tried twice, and both times I ended up feeling like I had swallowed acid. The first time I thought it might be something besides the beet itself--something in my dirt? a fluke? But tonight, I tried a few bites again, and I had the same reaction. Research on the internet showed that some people have the same reaction, especially to this particular variety of beet. So it wasn't just me. I'm kind of relieved to see I'm not a freak, but also sad that I can't eat these beautiful beets. Just be aware that some people are sensitive to them, and the burning is severe and no fun. (Not like a hot pepper burning, more like an acid burn.) Love Baker's Creek though! So far, loving the plants I'm growing from my first order with them.

Amazing looking beets

EarlyMaturity 5.0
 

What are the pros? beautiful, easy to grow

What are the cons? lose color when cooked

Review:

These beets are amazingly beautiful when they are raw. I chopped them up for a veggie soup and they looked like a bowl full of peppermints! These held up just fine to the light frosts we have through the winter and still grew pretty quickly. The only bummer is that they lose all their beautiful color once you cook them, but they still taste great.
