Very large, oblong, golden-yellow mangel beets are sweet and tasty if picked small, or let them mature for high-quality stock feed. A rare European heirloom that can grow huge. It also makes tasty greens.

What are the pros? consumed immature, raw. Sweet.

What are the cons? Pheasants, quail get to them.

Review:

I started growing these in 2002. I have yet to get any larger than 6 inches long or 2 1/2 inches across. The wild birds seem to find them once they start pushing up out of the ground, and so we get as many young ones for ourselves as can be put into salads or washed off right in the rows and eaten raw as we can. They are unexpectedly tender and flavorful, and seem to take up the minerals from the alkaline/calcium-rich soil more noticeably than most of the other red beets. They aren't what I would say "earthy" tasting, though. Just YUMMY! The seeds I have from Baker Creek seem to have a long life, and have germinated well in heavy soil over the years, quite unlike many of the other yellow beets on the market. Unfortunately, because they are so popular with the pheasants, I haven't had any plants to save seed from. These are great beets. I highly recommend them.
