not good, the seeds did not even sprout. However I suspect its me and not the seeds, as this is the second shot this year for this type of beets. Any Advice
A tornado felled a giant tree on my garden last spring, and by the time we got it cleared out it was too late to plant much. I had planted the beets very early and most survived, but with the loss of the garden fence, the rabbits kept eating most of the tops, so the beets didn't get very big. Nevertheless we harvested a batch and ate what greens were left. The beet roots of this variety are very easy to slice, and have a sweet wonderful flavor. I'll plant them again (with a rabbit-proof fence.)
great flavor. I planted in the square foot style and was very happy with the results.
The shape is very easy for slices and the flavor is sweet and good. I also use the tops fresh or dehydrated in winter soups. Store easily dehydrated greens in airtight containers. Air dried sliced pickled beets are wonderful snacks. A "leather" can also be made. The red red color in red beets has proven to be excellent for vasodialation and nitrous oxide release and is good for the heart and blood vessels. Other color beets don't offer as many cardiovascular benefits. Highly recommend!
