Here is the Detroit Dark Red Beet, Beta vulgaris. It is a Biennial and has been a favorite since the 1890's! They are a dark red beet with high sugar content that makes the best juice. They get to around 3 inches round but can get much larger in loose an loamy soils. This verity is best for canning or juicing. The leaves are great in salads and can be juiced as well. The juice is very sweet and has a smooth flavor. great when mixed with carrot, apple and a twist of ginger! We also recommend this variety as a microgreen and sprouts. Open pollinated 50 to 60 days till harvest or let it winter over for seed.
