A unique long and cylindrical beet gives 3 to 4 times more uniform slices than round beets. Sweet, dark red roots are 8" long, 1¾" across. GROWING HINTS: Baby beets make excellent eating, and harvesting them helps the remaining beets grow better. When planting, mix beet seeds with fast-sprouting radish seeds to mark the rows. Grows best in full sun. Certified Organic Seed.
