Review:

I am the only person in my family that loves beets. So I only grow them every other year and then can them like crazy, enough to last me two years. I’ve grown many varieties and I always come back to the Detroit dark red. It is a reliable producer and never fails. They produce fairly uniform in size and make the best pickled beets I’ve ever tasted! This is he only beet I will ever grow!

Review:

I love beets! Detroit Dark Red is my absolute favorite and usually a dependable producer. A must have in my garden! Unfortunately this growing season has been challenging, with high temps and drought like conditions. I tried babying my garden through the tough times, but sadly, my Detroit Dark Red seeds had terrible germination. Hopefully I have better luck next year.

Review:

I've grown Detroit Dark Red for years, but the seed was always off-the-rack at the local store. This year I bought them at Baker's, and what a difference this strain has made. Best beet I've ever grown or had, and I intend on growing these from now on.

Review:

These beets started a little slow, but took off and produced well. Some beets got quite large and all stayed smooth and shapely. These pickled very well and the color is great, almost purple. I will grow these again.

I hated beets til I tasted this variety. These are like candy! I LOVE them! I accidentally ordered a diff. Variety last year and it was awful. I can't wait to grow them again & the person we gave them to two years ago will be very happy to get more to I think??
