Description
Burpee's Golden
55 days — This dual purpose beet variety was originally bred and released by the W. Atlee Burpee Company. It has reportedly available since about 1828. Similar to, and probably the same variety as, 'Golden Detroit'.

The immature leaves are an attractive green with yellow stems and can be used raw in salads. More mature tops have a mild flavor when cooked as greens or sautéed.

The roots are sweet, a dark golden color with deep yellow flesh, and are excellent pickled, boiled, steamed, stir fried, or grated raw into salads. They retain their sweetness very well. The flesh does not bleed like red beets.  Each packet contains four grams, which is approximately 200 seeds.

Although the name of this variety contains a modern company's name, the seed we are offering is in no way sourced from, "owned by" or connected with that company. The name is simply the historically accurate, common name for the variety giving credit to the seedsman that originally released it.

This is one wonderful beet!
My wife and I are recent beet converts, and this is one of the best. Though many report lower than normal germination with this variety, we've found that early planting indoors (like tomatoes) and transplanting to individual plug flats results in much higher germination - and using the plugs into the garden leads to absolutely perfect beets!

Best beets
I should of entered these into the local fair this year. I produced beets that had diameters of 6'. With their uncommon color and the size that got I would of won for sure. By far the best tasting beets I've had, any way I have prepared them. I have to use all my willpower to not eat the pickled ones I have. I'm going to grow more next year and highly recommend these for anyone looking for a good producing, unique, beet.
