55 days. A wonderful heirloom from Denmark, this one is famous for slicing with its long, cylindrical roots. Produces much more uniform slices than round beets. This tender and sweet variety is also known as “Butter Slicer” because of its wonderful texture.

Review:

These are superb beets. Excellent texture and color (we like the solid-colored, deep dark beets), and hands down the easiest beet to peel and slice, which saves time in the kitchen. A heads-up about them, though: because the roots grow so far above the soil level, they are sitting ducks for mice. We had a lovely little crop of these waiting to be pulled. Snow was forecast and our fridge was full, so I put row cover over the hoops on the bed. That created a perfect habitat for the mice which hadn't bothered anything up till then. They got about 3/4 of our Cylindras. Major disappointment. Wish I'd thought about that in advance! Our carrots in the same bed, and Lutz beets in a different part of the garden, didn't get wrecked because their roots stayed completely underground. From now on I will bear in mind that the Cylindras should be harvested before anything needs to be covered..

Review:

These were the best beets ever!! My husband who usually tells me that beets taste like dirt changed his story after eating these. And, the shape made it much easier to prepare. If you love roasted root veggies you will definitely want to try these. Oh and don't forget the greens!

Excellent beet that has good flavor and texture. The beet root top grows out of the ground quite a bit. I wills definitely plant a fall crop too!

Review:

I've planted these beets for the past few years and wouldn't ever change beets. The size is tremendous and the flavor is excellent. It eats well both fresh and canned. Make this your number one beet!
