Red beets

Post by RonO » Thu Apr 27, 2017 5:43 pm

I heard on the radio show that I listen to on wsba York, Pa. about a unique garden beet. This beet is described as the larger it gets the sweeter it gets.

Does anyone know the name of this beet and where seeds can be purchased?

The beet Mark recommended was Winter Keeper or the Lutz Beet which is also known for its foliage that can be harvested. The latest planting fall fall is July or mid August.

The following seed companies list Lutz:
  • Cherry Gal

    Eden Brothers

    Jung

    Territorial

    Harris

    Pinetree

    Baker Creek Heirloom
