What are the pros? Easy to Grow, Store, Feed
What are the cons? Must Thin Early
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.
