The 1927 Henry Fields catalog said, “Giant, smooth, long roots of cylindrical shape, weighing up to 20 pounds each and growing two-thirds above ground. Solid white flesh with high food value.” These big yellow-skinned roots are perfect for growing as animal food, a tradition that is finally being brought back on many small farms.

What are the pros? Size

What are the cons? Taste

Review:

These were a breeze to grow. I started them indoors and they transplanted into the garden with ease. They quickly grew, and the tops are very generous. But the taste is bitter to me. These were not sweet at all. The chickens, however, LOVE them, so I'll be growing these for the chickens for fall and winter.

Review:

I originally grew these years ago for Deer Bait, but then I started to eat the delicious plant. I had some roots at least 18" above ground and 10" round & I'm serious. Generous greens are delicious too.

What are the pros? Easy to grow.

What are the cons? Looks are deceiving

Review:

Grew these this past year and found them interesting. Easy to monitor growth as most of the beet grows out of the ground with just a little in the soil. They look like they might be tough but when picked young are great in flavor and texture. Leaves are very tasty. I left a few in to see how large they could become and found them to be about 4" in diameter and 8 to 10 " tall after a few months... probably great for animals. Super easy.

Review:

My goats gobbled every bit of these up! I thought that I would have to offer these to them more then once, but no such problem. I will be buying more for the fall planting and next year and so on. They have nice tasty leaves, that I thought were spinach til I pulled them up. Must have for our garden.
