description for "Beets: Beta Vulgaris 'Flat of Egypt'"

This oddly named beet is both useful and diverse. With its rounded but flattened looking roots, it is very quick to mature in Fall. In milder areas, it can over winter. Its green tops are ideal for late season salads and its roots can be grilled or roasted. Maturity in 50 days. Edited by S. Derr
