Net wt. 4 g  (Approx. 220 to 240 seeds)

An open pollinated variety that produces good yields of large orange roots that do not have the classic Detroit round shape, instead a more elongated shape with no green shoulders.  Better size, vigor, taste, disease resistance and germinates faster and tolerates cooler soils better than Burpee’s Golden Beet. The beets turn deep yellow when cooked, and do not bleed like red beets. The roots store well and retain their sweet flavor during cooking! You can use the young green leaves with tender yellow stems in salads or cook the mature leaves for greens. Nothing goes to waste! A slow bolting variety that is perfect for Alaska’s long days.
