Organic Early Wonder Beet Seeds
Early 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.

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."
