What are the pros? nutritious, hardy, pest-free

What are the cons? none. they are superb!

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.

Review:

A little slow to start, but they really came on and grew well in the long run. We sold most of them to our local green market, and they sold quickly. This year we'll be selling them as a market farm. We highly recommend them.

What are the pros? pickled beets

What are the cons? store bought pickled beets

Review:

We plant these every spring for a beautiful fall crop to pickle. My dad used to grow these so we wanted the same to make my moms pickled beets. We never have a problem with birds, sometimes rabbits will eat at what sticks above the ground. We don't really eat them any other way but they pickle perfectly.

What are the pros? Tasty and easy

What are the cons? Birds also like the greens

Review:

These beets have had a high germination rate for me 2 years in a row, I have another fall crop sprouting now. The roots have never been pithy at any size and pickled or roasted they are delicious. The only problem I have is keeping the birds away from the greens as they will decimate the whole row if left to their own. Owls, scarecrows and shiny things have helped.
