Delicious but poor germination
Easy to Grow 3.0
EarlyMaturity 3.0
 

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!

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.

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.

What are the pros? Easy to sow; greens!

Review:

I love beets. I juice them, eat them raw, and steam the greens. These beets taste fantastic, when you can get them to grow larger than a radish! This is my first year trying beets, so I'm not giving up because what I got was fantastic! My soil is composted topsoil, but was "new" this year in my redesigned garden space. Can't wait until next year!
