A main season, open pollinated Danish heirloom that was introduced to the US in 1892. A variety with small reddish-green tops and produces uniform, smooth, long cylindrical roots that grow up to 6 inches by 2 inches in diameter. The roots are excellent for slicing and yield small, tender, baby beet slices. The flavorful, dark red roots grow almost entirely underground and have good interior color without zones or rings. A bolt resistant variety that is excellent for Alaskan gardens and can be harvested early for greens and then baby beet slices.
