Home-grown beets are simply the best. Tender and delicious, these 2½”–3″ beautiful, deep crimson beets do not get woody as do smaller varieties if allowed to grow large. Perfect for pickling, roasting, and even raw in salads! The greens rival chard and spinach for tenderness and flavor, and are very nutritious. Beet seed is actually a dried fruit with 1 to 5 seeds in each fruit, so make sure to thin!

Variety Information: 2 ½”–3″ blood red, globe shaped. Leaf tops are dark green on red stems. Introduced in 1892, ‘Detroit Dark Red’ is the standard for beets. It has particularly good tasting greens, and withstands fluctuations in temperature quite well.
