Organic beet seedsEarly Wonder Beet (33 days for greens and 60 days for beets)

Organic Early Wonder came into being sometime around 1911.  This is truly one of the best beet varieties for greens.  Whereas the other great variety for Organic greens has magenta leaves these are emerald green.  Early wonder tops are fast growing, sweet, flavorful and grow upwards of 18 inches. 

Early Wonder beets have three inch roots, are smooth, half-flat, bright red and grow to about 3" in diameter. Early Wonder seems to do a bit better in Southern climates than other beets, but still keep in mind that beets are a cool weather crop.

1950 Lindenberg Seed Company says about Organic early wonder beet...
"This is a recently developed, quick-growing variety that has a place in every garden. It is semi-globe shaped, about 3 inches across, with medium sized tops and a thin tap root. The skin is a dark red and the flesh a deep red with slightly lighter zones. Very popular as an early beet or for canning whole."

Organic Early Wonder beet is Recommended by the Following State Universities or Ag Extension Offices as a variety that performs well for their region . FL, OR, TX

Planting Tips For Beet Seeds:

Beet seeds can be planted in early spring or midsummer.  Soak seeds overnight in damp towel before planting for excellent germination.  Plant beet seeds 1” apart and thin weakest seedlings to desired spacing.  Keep soil evenly moist to prevent beet roots from getting woody.  For longer harvest, stagger beet plantings every 2-3 weeks.
