The 1927 Henry Fields catalog said, “Giant, smooth, long roots of cylindrical shape, weighing up to 20 pounds each and growing two-thirds above ground. Solid white flesh with high food value.” These big yellow-skinned roots are perfect for growing as animal food, a tradition that is finally being brought back on many small farms.

Review:

I originally grew these years ago for Deer Bait, but then I started to eat the delicious plant. I had some roots at least 18" above ground and 10" round & I'm serious. Generous greens are delicious too.

What are the pros? Easy to grow.

What are the cons? Looks are deceiving

Review:

Grew these this past year and found them interesting. Easy to monitor growth as most of the beet grows out of the ground with just a little in the soil. They look like they might be tough but when picked young are great in flavor and texture. Leaves are very tasty. I left a few in to see how large they could become and found them to be about 4" in diameter and 8 to 10 " tall after a few months... probably great for animals. Super easy.

Review:

My goats gobbled every bit of these up! I thought that I would have to offer these to them more then once, but no such problem. I will be buying more for the fall planting and next year and so on. They have nice tasty leaves, that I thought were spinach til I pulled them up. Must have for our garden.
