What are the pros? Cold tolerant, flavorful
What are the cons? None to speak of from me
Wonderful beets. Intense flavor and incredibly sweet. Cold tolerant to at least 25?F, though row covers helps them mature quicker. Performed very well during Spring in Zone 6b. No pest problems.

What are the pros? Only beet that grew in 2017
What are the cons? None
I planted 6 varieties of beets in our organic farm in 2017. This was the only beet to mature. We did have a hot with low humidity (4%) year along with heavy wildfire smoke. I was very impressed with this beet. I grew it in raised beds, in full sun, and planted around May 1. I live in the Rockies at 4000 feet.

What are the pros? Flavor, competitive
What are the cons? Absolutely nothing at all
So, I've grown these for two years now and both years I got overambitious with the size of my gardens. Both years I just let the weeds completely take over the beet patch (so dense with weeds and raspberry suckers that it looked like a bumber field crop of them) and after about a month and a half or two I'd inevitably have more time and would spend a few days yanking.
Both times I've had wondeful crops of beets. They like water but they don't care too much if they get pretty dry. Our soil is hard clay, they love that. Bugs don't bother them. They are the honey-badger of vegetables.
Their flesh is 100% what is shown in the picture, a super-rich red with the characteristic earthy-sweet beet flavor. Just if you have badly abused heavy clay soil that is always covered in weeds and dry midsummer conditions then you have found your new favorite plant (other beets are also oretty good for this, just this beet is extra hardy)

What are the pros? taste!
What are the cons? not much
Grew in very clay soils amended heavily with compost at 5000 ft elevation. Germination rate was very good. Seemed to tolerate some heat after they started growing. They get huge if given room! Very sweet and tasty. I prefer these to Detroit Red. Don't know how well they keep but will find out this fall/winter... Very pleased and will be growing them again! Thanks Baker Creek.

What are the pros? Grows fast in Rocky soil
These ought to be called Russian wonders, because they have surpassed my Detroit wonders in size and maturity. Great taste and grew well in quite Rocky soil I might add!
