55 days. A wonderful heirloom from Denmark, this one is famous for slicing with its long, cylindrical roots. Produces much more uniform slices than round beets. This tender and sweet variety is also known as “Butter Slicer” because of its wonderful texture.

Review:

Once I find a couple of winners in a category, I often get stuck! Why mess with a great producer that we love to eat? Plus I have a finite amount of space so experiments must be limited. I selected this beet solely for the promise of more slices and more even slices of beet for canning. This beet FAR EXCEEDED my expectations. The beets were amazingly large, nice texture, and wonderful taste. They were great raw! In terms of canning and pickling they seemed to cook more quickly and evenly versus round beets (a real time saver!). Overall Cylindra beets is our new go-to beet.

Review:

I had a lot of variation in the size on these, from 1-1/2 to about 4 inches. I love the shape -- they're perfect for slicing into bite-sized pieces for pickling. Good texture and taste -- better than most I've had.

Review:

These beets have stood up to the massive drought we've had in my area without getting woody. I've been very happy with them, and plan to grow them for market next year.
