Great for canning and fresh eating, this variety is a good keeper, producing round, blood-red, 3"-diameter roots. This historic variety was introduced in 1892 by D.M. Ferry & Company. Original selections were made from the Early Blood Turnip beet by Mr. Reeves of Port Hope, Ontario, Canada.

  • Packet 100 Seeds
  • Organic
  • Very dark red color
  • Prolific
  • Stores well
  • 60-65 days

This variety works for:

  • Fresh eating
  • Steaming
  • Boiling
  • Baking
  • Soup
  • Pickling
  • Canning

You can shred the raw, peeled root and add it to baked goods like muffins or chocolate cake. This is a great variety for making "beet burgers" using quinoa and chickpeas.

If you're looking for an alternative to the traditional pickled beet, try adding beets to your sauerkraut and kimchi.

Instructions - Sow seeds outdoors as soon as soil can be worked in spring. Seeds will germinate in 5-10 days. Plant at two-week intervals for a steady harvest. All parts of the beet plant are edible.

  • Direct Seed: 2" Apart
