These sweet, bright yellow beets are worth their weight in gold! They hold their color even during cooking. They do well in warm summers. Eat the roots when mature or enjoy the baby leaves over and over again.
Beets: Grown for their roots, beets are a great source of vitamins and nutrients without a lot of calories. They been shown to improve blood pressure as well as fight inflammation and help with digestion. Famous for their 'earthy' scent, beets contain geosmim which is also responsible for the smell of the forest floor after a rainfall.
Growing Tips: Beets do great all season long. Plant cells 6 inches apart with 2-3 plants in each cell. Young leaves can be harvested and steamed but taking leaves tend to make the beet root smaller.
