A standout beet. Introduced in 1970 by Burpee Seed Company, it has orange, globe-shaped roots that turn golden yellow when cooked. This variety offers both excellent roots and sweet, flavorful, edible greens that are ideal for sautéeing. It is also delicious when roasted, in soups, and in salads when complemented by grapefruit and red onion.
