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.

Would you recommend this product to a friend? Yes
