Early Wonder Tall Top
55 days — This variety yields crimson-red flesh with flattened globe-shaped roots and tall, bright, dark green succulent tops. You can use the tender leaves for greens and the dark red roots for salads, pickled, borsch or cooked.

'Early Wonder' first appeared in the United States seed trade simultaneously in the 1911 catalogs of F. H. Woodruff & Sons and S. D. Woodruff & Sons.  It was also known by as 'Boston Crosby' and 'Nuttings Gem'.[1]  Each packet contains four grams, which is approximately 200 seeds.

About as perfect as a beet can get.
Perfect germination, pretty much indifferent to weather and pests. Beautiful greens and root; about as perfect as a beet can get.
