Not only does the color of this beet make it stand apart, but so does the flavor. Golden beets are known for being extra sweet and less "earthy" than their red counterparts. Grown alongside red, white, and candy-striped beets, your harvest will create a playful plate of color at the table. Improved germination and performance over other golden cultivars. Best at 1"–3" round.

Harvesting: For early spring sowings, harvest beets before summer heat. For late summer sowings, harvest before first heavy freeze. For winter sowings in mild climates, harvest in early spring. Harvest when roots are anywhere from 1"–3" in diameter. The smaller they are, the more tender. Greens are most tender when small, so start harvesting when they are 2" tall. You can take as much as one third of a beet plant's outer leaves without harming the root crop.

Grew these for the first time this fall. The beets were not huge (mine only got to be 1-1/2" diameter max) but extremely tasty. They were nice and mild. But let me tell you, the beet greens these produced were out of this world...amazing taste!! They are my new favorite!
Stephanie Maola from TX
Owner Response: Hi Stephanie, We are so happy you enjoyed these. Large greens and smaller roots can be a sign of high nitrogen. Nitrogen feeds leaf growth and when it high it can be at the expense of root growth, fruiting, or flowering. I just wanted to make note of that in case you saw that in the crops.
