What are the pros? Easy to Grow, Store, Feed

What are the cons? Must Thin Early

Review:

We grow this beet every year... using it for livestock food. It keeps well all winter long if you keep it in a cool place where it does not freeze. Must be harvested prior to first frost or it will spoil during storage. High sugar content but does not cause diarrhea which is a problem with some of the other mangles. In the winter you can harvest the greens off of your stored livestock food if you let a little light shine into the food vault. Its a good bank food and I also won second place at the fair.... maybe first place next year. Make sure to thin out the plants and lime the soil.

Review:

I grew only one to simply to see how big it would get and it was probably around 15 lbs. The description said it was grown primarily to feed livestock, so I wasn't hoping for much in terms of flavor. The description is also slightly misleading as the flesh inside is white, not red. I left mine in the ground until first frost, and then it sat for a couple weeks in my garage and got a little softer. When I finally cooked it, it was absolutely fantastic. It was better than the other two other varieties of beets that I had planted (one red and one yellow). I will definitely plant a few of these next year.
