Detroit Dark Red
58 days — Introduced in the United States in 1892 by the D. M. Ferry Seed Company, the Detroit Dark Red is said to be the most popular garden variety today. Its origin are based in the European Early Blood Turnip.

Very tasty fresh out of the garden, it also maintains its taste and texture well after being canned or pickled.

Globe shaped, excellent color, sweet, smooth and tender. Each packet contains four grams which is approximately 200 seeds.

Beautiful and Tasty
I have planted the Detroit Dark Red Beets for three years now. They are beautiful, tasty and grow in our very marginal soil. We have hot dry summers and winter until June; yet, these beets begin bearing by late July and continue through September.

Detroit Dark Red Beet
This was our first time to grow beets. I don't care for them myself, but my husband loves them. Every seed planted came up and I now have a pantry with beautiful jars of pickled beets in it. I'm re-ordering today for a fall crop. Excellent seed, great service! I recommend this site to anyone who asks "where can I find good seed?"
