A real self-sufficiency crop,

beets provide baby greens for salad mix, greens for cooking, 

and sweet roots for cooking, canning, and winter storage. 

High-nutrition "superfood", detoxifying. Sow when the soil is starting to warm, just after peas and lettuce.  If you are fond of beet greens and want to harvest them during the season, not just when you pull the beets, plant a row just for greens. Harvesting more than a few leaves before the roots are mature robs the beet roots of the energy they need to grow big and sweet.

How do I choose? 

We suggest an early-to-mid-season variety for fresh eating (pick your favorite color and taste) and a late storage variety (Lutz or mangel ) for winter.  Any beet will work to can or freeze, but Cylindra is easiest to peel and slice.
