Ruby Queen Beet Seeds
Ruby Queen Beet Seeds (55 days)
Ruby Queen beet's round red roots have a smooth buttery texture that pleases the tongue. You will surely be satisfied with this early producing beet. Ruby Queen beet performs well in poor soil and holds its shape well in crowded situations.
Ruby Queens can obtain a larger size than most beets and not get that woody texture or dirt/soapy taste. Ruby Queen is one of our favorites on the farm here. We plant a small crop once a month till it gets too hot. That way we are never out of fresh beets for salads or supper.
Ruby Queen beet has been the canning industry's favorite for years as well as the home gardeners choice for reliable beets.
Ruby Queen makes a great canning and pickling beet.
