What are the pros? reliable delicious firm

What are the cons? None

Review:

Great for fresh eating, canning and pickling. My family expects gifts of shiny dark pickled beats for Christmas and birthdays. They were a little slow to germinate last year and I had to replant a couple times due to pounding rains washing the seed away. Once up and going, they grew produced quickly. Texture is firm and taste is delicious. Best beet ever. My parents and grandparents grew them when I was a kid, and I continue the tradition. I don't experiment with other beets because we have grown the best for generations now.

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.
