description for "Beets: Beta Vulgaris 'Early Wonder'"

Harvest comes early with this old Heirloom beet variety. First introduced before the 1800's, this early selection is still a favorite today. With its smooth rounded, almost bulging roots, their dark red color and sweet flavor can be enjoyed fresh or cooked in many dishes. The greens can also be eaten and are sweeter if picked young. Reaches maturity in 50 days. Edited by S. Derr
