Cylindra Formanova Beet
50 days. A wonderful Heirloom from Denmark, this one is famous for slicing with its long, cylindrical roots. Produces much more uniform slices than round beets. This tender and sweet variety is also known as "Butter Slicer" because of its wonderful texture.
Contains approx 100 heirloom seeds
Longer, bigger, darker, shinier, smoother, and tastier, this is the best quality beet I have ever grown. My market garden customers' taste tests always chose this beet. Feedback on cooking, canning, and freezing, from many housewives, preferred this beet. I have a waiting list of customers waiting for me to grow more of these beets next year.
