What are the pros? Easy no fuss hard to fail
What are the cons? too sweet?
Have grown Cylindra beets for over 10 yrs, love the long fat shape, so easy to prepare compared to round beets. HINT: pre-sprout the seeds on a damp paper towel, put it on large dinner plate or platter, put completely inside a plastic bag, check every day, about 2 days you will have little rootlets -- these are much easier to plant outside, no guessing where you put the brown seed since you can see the white rootlet. You can also pre-sprout and then plant in potting soil in a recycled deep salad mix container, let them grow for a month, and transplant outside. The transplants method is my favorite way.
We have canned these, works nicely, and we also have made wine from them, which takes about 3 years to mature, but wow is it ever nice!
My only "problem" with these are that they are SO sweet, I can't eat too much of them on my new low-carb diet! However, the greens are totally allowed....so will plant them again!
