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.
