55 days. This variety dates back to the 1820s or before. The beets are a rich, golden-yellow and very sweet. A beautiful beet that won’t bleed like red beets. The greens are also very tasty. A favorite of many.

Review:

I have tried growing these beets, but last year I bought them at my local farmers market. They are really delicious and the color is stunning. I think it is worth growing them just for the color. They taste a little different from a red beet being a bit milder. I'm growing them this year for my CSA and can't wait to see how they turn out

Delicious but poor germination

What are the pros? Delicious, and beautiful color

What are the cons? Poor germination

Review:

Last year, I grew Detroit Dark Reds, and Golden beets in the same bed. The Reds came up much more reliably than these golds. I'm going to try again this year, in case it was a fluke thing, or in case there was user error involved. Would love to be able to get a reliable crop from the seeds, as I love the fact that they are delicious and won't stain everything. Beautiful beets!

What are the pros? Delicious, tender

What are the cons? rough skin, weed sensitive

Review:

Let me just say that I really dislike beets and only grew these because my kids like beets and this was going to be a compromise. They were--surprise!-- quite yummy! Still not my favorite veggie because of the strong flavor, but I will happily eat them. And the kids were thrilled. I found them to be a bit difficult to keep weeded and the beets themselves stayed small, but those two things are probably related! I would recommend these to anyone who wants the earthiness of beets without the really beety flavor, and plus a very pleasant buttery-ness. Quite nice.

I still prefer reds for flavor. But it was a nice change. They were a little slower and smaller then the reds.

Best Beat I Grew Spring 14
Easy to Grow 4.5
EarlyMaturity 4.5
 

What are the pros? Easier for me than some others

What are the cons? I planted too few

Review:

I planted Golden Beets, Bull's Blood, and Craupadine this past spring. The Golden seemed to do much better in the heavy rocky soil here than the other 2, but I struggle in general here with most root veggies. These are very tasty from the roots to the greens and I will be trying to get a fall crop as I still have seeds left, but I haven't given up on trying to grow other beets quite yet.
