description for "Beets: Beta Vulgaris 'Crosby's Egyptian'"

Rounded purple roots characterize this beet variety. This early selection produces good yields on both its roots and tops. Stems are flavorful in salads, if picked early. The roots are both flavorful and diverse. Enjoy them fresh or baked, pickled or frozen. Beets will keep their shape and flavor well into Fall harvest. Maturity 55 days. Edited by S. Derr
