Burpee's Golden

55 days — 'Burpee's Golden' dual purpose beet variety. 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 making them a lot less messy to eat. The immature leaves are an attractive green color with yellow stems and can be used raw in salads. More mature tops have a mild flavor when cooked as greens or sautéed.

The history on this variety are a bit sketchy but as we discover documentation, we will include it here. Some seed sellers are incorrectly crediting Burpee with releasing their 'Golden' beet in 1828. This is obviously wrong since W. Atlee Burpee was not even born until 1858. What we do know is that golden colored beets have been around since the 1820s. Burpee's is similar to, and possibly a synonym of  'Golden Detroit'. It was released by the Burpee Seed Company in 1970.[1] Each packet contains four grams, which is approximately 200 seeds.
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.

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!

I Don't (Didn't) Like Beets ... And I now like beets!
I Don't Like Beets! Or I didn't like beets -- childhood memories of eating blood red, strong flavored beets -- but for some reason, I decided to give beets a try again.

And I now like beets! These are mild and sweet, and have a interesting golden color. The tops were as good as the beets themselves, just eaten raw in a salad. I will keep growing beets now, and these are the ones.
