55 days. Outstanding home garden beet with a very short top, just 10” in height,
showing uniform growth; round, smooth roots have a luxurious, evenly-red interior
color which complements the pleasant, buttery texture and mild, sweet flavor.
Performs well even in poor soil; tolerates crowding, holding its 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.
