What are the pros? Root and greens both super
What are the cons? A bit light colored pickled
I've grown this beet for 2 years now and have to say, it's one of my favorite beets. The root is sweet but the greens are absolutely wonderful as well. Very large and tender! I like to pickle beets for winter table treats but these don't keep the deep color as much as some of the other varieties I've raised but the flavor is still wonderful so I can give up a bit of color for the other great qualities of this beet. My first year planting them I put in 2 rows. By late summer I had enough beets and greens for our household as well as many friends tables. So a super productive beet. Last year I cut back to one row and had enough to eat as well as share. I froze greens for winter and they taste great even after being in the freezer all winter. And due to my huge crop the year before I didn't have to pickle last summer. I plan to put in a very short row this year just for the greens but we'll enjoy the root just as much as the greens.
