As a source of both tender greens and brightly coloured, fleshy edible roots, beets are a welcome addition to any garden.

This variety is the standard bearer of the beet family. The quick maturity, sweet earthy taste and uniform shape make this variety the perfect candidate for canning, freezing or pickling.

Beets grow best and the colour is the most intense in the cooler temperatures of late spring and early summer. Overwatering or excessive rainfall may lead to excessive leaf growth and pale or small roots. Beets can also be grown in containers.
