Description

New Product!

Mamma mia, nothing beets these beauties! The flesh is very tender, mild, and sweet. The sugar caramelizes when roasted and makes the beets irresistibly delicious. Gorgeous candy-striped interior is very attractive and even gets kids interested in eating them. Amend neutral-to-slightly alkaline soil with well-rotted compost, work the soil deeply and remove any rocks or sticks. Thin early for best results. Frost-hardy.
