This improved selection of the popular Detroit Dark Red beet produces higher yields of smooth, uniform globe-shaped roots. The flesh is tender, fine-grained, sweet and deep red throughout with indistinct zoning. Excellent for large dicing beets as they do not get woody, or use them small for canning and pickling. The glossy green medium tops make tangy boiling greens. High yielding.
