What are the pros? Tasty and successful
What are the cons? Take longer than indicated
Of all the beet varieties I've tried, goldens germinate the best, grow best, and taste best. I've even left them in the soil way past maturity, because I'd eaten so many beets that I needed a break, and by the time I pulled them they were still good. If you like beets in different cuisine, try this one. It doesn't bleed, so I grate one into my daikon radish slaw to put on pulled pork sandwiches. Roast these and red beets in different containers, because the red ones will bleed, then toss together with balsamic and goat cheese. They're even good pickled; I inserted a couple red jalapenos into the jars for a beautiful contrast. Oh, and here's a hint: each beet seed is actually a pod containing several seeds. When several sets of leaves sprout, carefully tease them up with a spoon, separate individual seedlings and redistribute where you want them. They can handle the shock as long as they haven't formed the first true sets of leaves. This allows you to have bigger roots and more harvest.
