Harvesting & Storage: For best flavor, harvest roots while they are 1"-3". To minimize moisture loss in the roots, twist off the greens. Roots store well in humid, cool conditions. Greens should be eaten within 1 or 2 days of picking.

Reliable

I planted these in a garden bed that didn't have very good soil, and they grew anyway!

Impressive start

I'm fairly new at gardening, and recently learned I could plant a fall garden in Western NY. I ordered these seeds to see how successful I would be. I soaked the seeds as directed, and planted them in my garden last week. After a week of traveling, I came back to find a bounty of plants growing! My early season beets were fantastic, so we decided to try these for the fall garden. I'm hoping I can get a good harvest before the snow arrives.

Beets arrived on time

Beets arrived on time and I have not had a chance to plant but I am a fan of how the Detroit reds did so I'm expecting good things!

Just planted this year

I am raised-bed gardening for the first ever time this year and am so excited to finally be able to grow root vegetables! These were one of the very first ones I picked out to try. I will update this review again later when the beets are fully grown! The description on the package sounds delicious! (from Santa Rosa, California)

Great looking seedlings so far.

It's mid-February in the Willamette Valley and I've sown lots of my spring/summer veggies. These golden beets came up really quickly in my trays and have really pretty yellow/orange stems and healthy-looking leaves. Hope I can update to review the taste in a couple months!
