Heirloom. Round, sweet flavoured roots are a golden-yellow colour. The luscious leaves are green with golden stems. Many people consider the leaves of the Golden Beet superior in flavour to many spinach varieties. Because flesh is yellow there is minimal “bleeding” to discolour other ingredients in salads. In very high demand with gourmet chefs–order early. A real winner right from the time it was introduced in the 1940’s.
