Description
Red Mammoth Fodder Beet
95 to 120 days — Although mangel or fodder beets have all but disappeared from modern agriculture, especially home gardening, they once held an important place in a typical farm plan. Like many old-time crops, they often found their way to their sower's table. At a younger age, they are quite suitable for this purpose. Left to reach maturity, they are lifted and stored and prove to be a valuable winter feed for livestock and poultry.

'Red Mammoth' beets store well and reach a very large size. The oval to spindle-shaped roots can reach twenty to twenty five pounds. They are a dull red color with white flesh and provide an excellent amount of food value per acre. Each packet contains four grams, which is approximately 300 seeds.

Good Fodder Beet
I planted these for poultry fodder. I was a little disappointed that mine didn't get very big but I just threw them in the back of the garden with no fertilizer or water other than rain. Considering that they did quite well. I pulled a couple up and the hens seemed to like them. I will be growing these again.

VSC NOTES: These fodder beets do require a very long time to reach large sizes and they do benefit from rich soil and a bit of attention. Instead to lifting them from the garden in August, I would let them reach maturity and use them as winter fodder for your hens when other produce has become more scarce. I suspect that you will be happy with their size in a couple of months! Hope that this helps. ~Mike
