Huge colorful roots characterize this beet variety. Its long, cylindrical shaped roots are an eye popping yellow with white flesh. These can weigh up to 20 pounds each and almost two thirds of the root grows above the ground. This heirloom biennial is generally used for livestock feed. Edited by S. Derr
