Beets Detroit Red (Net Wt. 3g.) – Matures in 58 days. A choice late variety, the tops making small upright growth, thus allowing planting in close rows, important where space is limited. Skin and flesh are deep red, tender, fine-grained and very sweet. This is a splendid variety for canning or for winter storage. Young beet tops make excellent greens which are used like Swiss Chard, and can be grown all summer.
