Ruby Queen Beet

100% of 100

55 days. Outstanding home garden beet with a very short top, maturing at just 10" in height. Round, smooth roots have a luxurious, evenly-red interiors that complement the pleasant, buttery texture and mild, sweet flavor. They perform well even in poor soil, tolerating crowding, and holding their shape better than most. This All-America Selections winner for 1957 has been preferred for generations, both by the commercial canning industry and home food preservers.
