Cylindra Beet Seed
Our Cylindra Beet seed is open pollinated. This beet is made for slicing! It's a unique long and cylindrical beet that gives 3 to 4 times more uniform slices than round beets.
Sweet, dark red roots are 8" long, 1 3/4" across. Cylindra is a Danish variety. The sweet, deep red flesh is free from rings and the skin is easy to peel. Baby beets make excellent eating or juicing, and harvesting them helps the remaining beets grow better.
