Review:

I'm not a big fan of beets but these taste good. I enjoyed the greens even more. Direct seed April 22nd (heavily mulched). Greens in June and started pulling beets mid August. The greens even survived our first fall freeze. Will be growing next year as well.

What are the pros? Subtle but deep flavors

What are the cons? Needs cooking

Review:

The BEST beat to roast. Then just marinade with some fresh dill and lemon juice and serve on a bed of curly endive lettuce. Red beets pale in comparison to roasted golden beet. Alos good for a roasted root vegetable dish with turnips, salsify, etc. These beets are huge too so it does not take many to make a meal for several people. They have a fairly long season compared to other root vegetables.

What are the pros? Great tasting beets and greens

What are the cons? Slow to mature, not all grew

Review:

These are great beets overall, and I'd consider growing them just for the greens. I steamed the beets and the taste was good, sweet. I sauteed the greens with garlic and olive oil and they taste better than kale, Swiss chard, and other greens I've tried. Some of the beets didn't develop a bulging root though.

What are the pros? Tasty beets and greens.

What are the cons? Slow to harvest

Review:

It seemed strange to have that beet taste without the traditional red color. The golden beet's taste is just a bit more subdued. And no red bleeding. I love them cold in a salad with bleu cheese. They are very easy to "peel" - after cooking let cool and the peels will just slip right off. This year I did a direct sow into the garden, but because it took so long to harvest, I'm going to start them indoors next year.

Review:

I enjoyed growing these. Never grew beets before but I had a neighbor introduce me to these and figured I would try them out this year. So glad I did. I used them to replace spinach in my recipes and my family never noticed. I enjoyed roasting the beets with a bit of thyme, rosemary and butter. They took some time to sprout but once they started they were low maintenance. Wish I had know about separating theM when young for more beets like another reviewer here. I will be trying a fall planting of them so I can have these beauties to brighten up my winter
