What are the pros? love the taste!

What are the cons? wimpy

Review:

I love golden beets, buy them at the grocery store, but cannot grow them for the life of me! Is it Utah? I grow Detroit red beets with ease, but can barely get these seedlings to grow to 4" tall ...wimpy and useless as beets. Disappointed. Ideas? Is it our Utah climate? Try it every single year, but no luck yet!

What are the pros? Great Germination

What are the cons? None so far

Review:

Well, I planted these in the late summer looking forward to harvest time. The germination rate must have been 90% or better. They grew and leafed out very quickly. Unfortunatly they were devestated by a rogue wave of blister beetles. Will try again this year.

Review:

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.

What are the cons? hard to grow

Review:

I tried successive plantings of these beets and only got a few to germinate each time, none made it to maturity. I sowed these by my Detroit Dark Reds and my Chiogga's both of which did great, while these Golden Beets had very low germination rates and died before maturity. I really wanted to try them but had zero luck with these. I am in Northern Indiana Zone 5B.
