Large, red beet especially well suited for winter storage. These have gorgeous tops: if you get the watering just right, you can have a huge yield of greens at harvest time which blanch and freeze beautifully.  If you want the large beautiful beets that are the potential of this variety, plant by June 1 here in the Methow. They don’t seem to size up if planted later.


~150 seeds per packet

  • Why choose locally grown, regionally adapted seeds?

    ✿ Our seeds are intentionally bred to maximize resilience, be resistant to pests and diseases, produce vigorously, and taste delicious.

    ✿ That means our seeds come from plants grown right here and have started the process of acclimating to this region, which makes them easier to grow.

    ✿ We aim to work our land in a way that honors our human and more-than-human kin in the water, soil, and air.
