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.
Recommended by the Following State Universities or Ag Extension Offices as a variety that performs well for their region. OR, TX
I purchased the Fall Seed Collection for some container gardening this autumn and have been very pleased with the results. Germination rate was fantastic and I had to do much more thinning than I usually do from store-bought seeds. The little growing guide helped with varieties I haven't grown before (hello, kohlrabi). All of my plants are hardy and healthy and I'm already enjoying the early harvests. Looking forward to maturity on the longer growers. Will be buying the Granny's kitchen garden pack for spring. Thanks so much!
