This beet delivers ample-sized swollen roots early in the season. Its foliage is upright and well-sized and can be used for greens (their taste is similar to chard). Early Wonder has it all: tasty, abundant greens, flavorful beets, and early production. An excellent choice. Great for mild climates where multiple crops are possible. The 18″ greens are as delicious as chard or spinach and high in vitamins A and C, iron and potassium. Beet seed is actually a dried fruit with 1-5 seeds in each fruit, so proper thinning is very important.
