True to its name, this cylinder shaped beet is both flavorful and unique. Known for its sweet taste, ease of peeling and fine graining, its a favorite of both chefs and gardeners. Its roots are approximately six inches in length and sport red/purple tops. These can be used in salads or as mixed greens. Maturity is 55 days. Edited by S. Derr
