This blend of beets contains a 50/50 split of Detroit Dark Red and Golden Detroit. Both are vibrantly coloured can be harvested for their roots and tops, because nature is awesome like that. In fact, the Golden Detroit’s delicious, golden-veined leaves are almost the star of the show. Almost.
Grate these babies raw into salads or pickle ’em for the winter. Detroit Dark red is super sweet and best harvested young. Golden Detroit has a slightly honeyed taste and keeps its colour when cooked, which is great if you don’t want golden-coloured everything in your meal. (If you do, we can’t help you).
