One of the best heirloom beets for long term storage. The purple-red roots are round to somewhat elongated and can grow quite large without getting woody. A 6 inch diameter root isn't unusual. Their tender flesh and incredible sweet flavor provides a long season of good eating as they can be harvested at almost any stage. The huge, glossy green, pink-veined, chard-like tops are also delicious. Also called Winter Keeper.

    I've planted this beet the past 3 years. Aside from trying to keep the rabbits from eating the young tender leaves and thus stunting its development, these beets remain edible even if left in the ground throughout the Summer and harvested when quite large. The germinate well and grow well.
