60 days. A brilliant beet to set your rootstacks ablaze with flaming orange color! The golden beet is a must for farms and market gardens. Both the greens and the roots are milder in flavor than the super-earthy traditional red beet-- a fact that should always be shared with those customers who have an aversion to standard beets. The deep yellow/golden roots are rich in the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin, which both can play a pivotal role in eye health. The nuanced flavor and lack of stain-everything deep purple dye means that golden beets are often requested by high-end chef clientele and foodie customers. It is hard to believe that this seemingly “new” take on beets actually dates back to the 1800s! Try growing this golden variety in concert with the traditional red and Chioggia striped varieties for a nutritious rainbow beet collection. It is also suitable for microgreens. Just like the super cold-hardy red beet, the golden beet is a welcome sight in winter markets, providing nutrition and color in the offseason. A versatile root crop, you can harvest golden beets in microgreen, baby, medium, or large root size. Sow dense bands and be sure to market beet thinnings as baby greens
