In 1885, the French book The Vegetable Garden stated this is one of the oldest varieties. Today some experts feel this may be the oldest beet still in existence, possibly dating back 1000 years. This unique variety is one of the most flavorful, with carrot-shaped roots that have rough, dark colored skin that looks like tree bark. Inside, the roots are very dark, with almost black flesh that is of superior quality and sought after by chefs who want real flavor. We are proud to offer this rare old selection.

What are the pros? Great flavour

What are the cons? VERY prone to splitting

Review:

These taste very good (the little I was able to taste), but the root splits into a million tiny roots if it hits even the smallest of rocks. I have normal soil with some rocks here and there, nothing abnormal. No problems growing straight carrots etc, but these beets did not work out at all. I would only plant these if I had perfect, rock-free soil.
