  • The Golden beet doesn't bleed like other beets. The "greens" of this beet are very good. The only drawback to this variety is its lower germination rate, so plant a little thicker.
  • The long season Lutz Green Leaf beet is grown for the tops and late in the season a large beet.
  • Little Ball is a baby beet for spring and fall planting.
  • Detroit Dark Red won't take heat as it looses quality, a good one for Nov. - Feb. planting.
  • Cylindria, a long cylindrical beet grown up to 8 inches long and 2 inches in diameter, good for slicing.
  • Chioggia, sweeter than most. An Italian heirloom, with red and white circles (or stripes, depending upon how you cut them.)
  • Albino, a white beet, is high in sugar. Start harvesting when roots are 1 - 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Maturity dates are 50 to 68 days.
