Review:

I love beets! Detroit Dark Red is my absolute favorite and usually a dependable producer. A must have in my garden! Unfortunately this growing season has been challenging, with high temps and drought like conditions. I tried babying my garden through the tough times, but sadly, my Detroit Dark Red seeds had terrible germination. Hopefully I have better luck next year.

Review:

I've grown Detroit Dark Red for years, but the seed was always off-the-rack at the local store. This year I bought them at Baker's, and what a difference this strain has made. Best beet I've ever grown or had, and I intend on growing these from now on.

Review:

These beets started a little slow, but took off and produced well. Some beets got quite large and all stayed smooth and shapely. These pickled very well and the color is great, almost purple. I will grow these again.

Review:

In my Missouri garden these beets provide tasty, nutritious food nearly year round. Spring greens, fall greens, often winter greens. The beets themselves are delicious raw and cooked. Eat the small ones fresh sliced or lightly cooked, make soup with the bigger ones. They even do fine through the very hot humid summers, growing in the shade of inter-planted tomato and pepper plants. I've even transplanted mature ones to make way for the summer garden and now enjoy perennial greens growing from grand old roots along the fence line. I find that the roots only get woody in their 2nd year. Not bad! These are beets to live by, a real friend in the garden.
