What are the pros? Huge leaves, so easy
What are the cons? Beets make my throat tingle
I have decided I like the beet tops/greens/leaves/stems better than the root because the actual beet makes my throat tingle. The more things I can eat raw the better and for my throat not to tingle I have to cook the beets. The leaves and stems dont cause the problem. The stalks are amazingg!! Its exact texture and crunch and handle as celery but has hint taste of beet!!! Doesnt taste like celery but just like beet! During the hot of the season all my lettuces (7 kinds) were bitter (except mizuna & orach) so I used the beet greens for salads. This particular beet had HUGE abundant greens and celery like stalks for my massive salads ? and also leaves used as wraps for raw vegan burritos! I'm a new gardener and these grew so easy .. I didnt water I just put seeds in ground (several kinds of beets) and these all grew!
