Golden Beets

SKU: $1.40

These century-old American heirlooms are an orangey-gold color and have a mild, delicate flavor that stands out in roasted vegetable dishes and looks great in salads and served as a side dish. These are simply great! Golden beets can be eaten just like any other beet -- raw for a snack, raw in salads, baked or cooked in soups and stews. The greens are also tender and delicious year-round. Annual. Approx. 30-40 seeds per pack.

NUTRITION INFO: Golden beets are an excellent source of folate (natural folic acid, a form of vitamin B) and a good source of manganese. According to the Mayo Clinic website, folic acid helps women of childbearing age prevent specific kinds of birth defects. Folic acid is also of interest with respect to cognitive enhancement, cancer, psychiatric illnesses, and cardiovascular conditions. Manganese, according to Oregon State University's Micronutrient Information Center, is essential for cellular antioxidant function, metabolism, bone development, and wound healing.

HOW TO GROW: Plant 1/2-inch deep in spring, summer, or fall. Keep moist until established. If planting in winter, follow instructions in the Backyard Winter Gardening book. Harvest at any bulb size, or harvest leaves at any size.
