55 days. This variety dates back to the 1820's 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.

What are the pros? Sweet and non-staining

What are the cons? Small

Review:

All things considered, I like these very much. Last year I grew Detroit Dark Red, Albino and these golden beets. They were the smallest of the three and my germination was spotty, perhaps 60%, while the others were more reliable. The Albino seemed to have little of that true beet flavor, which I love. The Golden were sweet and less assertive in flavor than the reds, but the greens seemed less sweet. Still good, but not as good as the old standby Detroit Dark Red. I planted only the red and golden beets this year, and I'll plant a fall crop of each, but I'll make sure to sow the golden beets more thickly to ensure a reliable crop. All three seemed to mature at approximately the same time, which I liked because I could just get the canning over with at one time, while leaving the smaller beets growing until I wanted them for eating fresh.

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Greens were tough

Review:

I just finished building my garden this year and wanted something that would be easy to grow. These are absolutely delicious! They never got that big, but I chalk that up to not enough nutrients in the soil. I live in the rainiest city in what I've been told is the world, and we are 30 miles south of Alaska, so that may have something to do with it too. The only downside I found is the greens were a bit tougher, than other beet greens I've had, but I planted chard as well, so it was easily overlooked. Next year, we are going to be building cold frames over the raised beds, so I'm going to try them again and see if that makes a difference.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, fast to mature

What are the cons? none

Review:

I am going to admit that when I purchased these the only beet I ever ate was spit out on my dinner plate in disgust but I wanted to try again and bought these golden beets hoping they would change my mind. I directly sowed these guys a little late in the season but they came up quickly---REALLY quickly and seemed to mature faster than the bulls blood beets I planted. I harvested these and decided to try one in it's all-natural state....not too bad. I think they would be much better roasted or just plain cooked but they were pretty darn ok raw. I will be planting a few more in my fall garden. Now to come up with some beet recipes....

What are the pros? Really tasty, pretty.

What are the cons? None

Review:

Great flavor, easy to grow, they don't stain like regular beets and taste better. Make awesome Harvard beets and are fantastic roasted. They do not like summer, I tried planting for a second crop in July and they haven't even come up yet, but that's my fault. I'm trying again for fall/winter. I have limited space and a lot of plants but most of my garden space is dedicated to these now.

Review:

These beets grew much more slowly and were smaller than any other beet I've grown. They also produced less, but that being said, the taste and texture is great. They are slightly sweeter and much smoother. I pickled some of these and they are fantastic!
