70 days. Quite possibly the best storage beet known. Top-shaped red roots with concentric lighter zones. Pink stemmed leaves are renowned for use like chard, superb in salads. Roots remain tender and sweet even when grown to quite a large size, having reached 3-4 pounds! Also known as “Winter Keeper.”

Review:

I planted my first set of Lutz Salad Leaf in Houston in mid-October. The seeds sprouted quickly but took quite a while to grow. The tops didn't get large until around the first week of January, and didn't get a decent sized root until mid-February (almost 100 days). I don't know if it's because I planted late, my soil, the weather, or any other factors. I planted a second group in mid-January, and after 6 weeks they are about 3" high. The second group will probably also need 100 to 110 days to maturity. But. These beets are incredibly delicious. They were worth every day of the wait. Smooth flesh, nice beet flavour without being overwhelmed by earthy/dirt tastes, very slightly sweet and crisp. The colour is amazing, when cut into quarters and then the quarters sliced, the red and rose banding looks like finest-quality sushi tuna. The leaves are indeed good eating as well, and I didn't have any problems with pests.

Review:

This is a terrific beet to grow in the fall, because it stores well. It gets very large - I've grown some that weigh a pound - if you plant early enough. Here in northern Virginia I plant at the end of July. Beets taste best if you fertilize with kelp meal because that adds trace minerals to the soil. The greens are terrific, too. Watch out for the thin (1/16") thread in the middle of these beets when you prepare them. I roast these, covered, in the oven for 1-2 hours, depending on the size of the beets.

Review:

When my step children first came to live with me they adamantly declared they would not eat BEETS! After grating these and just quickly sautéing them in a little butter until crisp tender they could never get enough of them. They lasted for months in our root cellar and even the beets that grew to be HUGE were tender and sweet. I wonder if these were some kind of cross between a beet and a sugar beet? They are that good!
