Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Burpee Golden Beet Seeds
Burpee Golden Beet(58 days)
Burpee Golden beet made its debut in 1970. If you are annoyed when those pesky red beets "bleeding" all over your counters, then this is the beet for you. Want to wow your dinner guests? Slice them straight out of the garden when they are almost golden-orange and toss them in a salad like we do. They don't seem to have the earthy taste some beets can have raw. So they are just yummy and healthy raw!
Cook them and they turn buttercup yellow. Golden beets retain a silky smooth sweet flavor even when cooked.
Golden beets are globe shaped and remain mild even when they get older. The tops can't be "beet" (lol couldn't resist) either; they are tasty, green and even sweet to some palates.
