Cylindrical Red Beet - Seeds
Latin name: Beta vulgaris crassa
If you love beets, but don't love peeling them, this variety is for you! The elongated cylindrical red beet is easy to peel with a vegetable peeler. It's a chef's favourite, as its shape enables you to make small, uniform slices, making it ideal for pickling. The cylindrical shape also lends itself well to making fries, mixed in and baked with other root vegetables... simply delicious!
