Forono Beet

Unusual slender, 6" long beet that is ideal for canning and pickling.

It has a particularly deep red interior and extraordinarily sweet flavor. This is a real gourmet item. 50-55 days.

Grown by: Steve Peters and Fifth Crow Farm in Pescadero California

This 2" wide by 5" long heirloom is very similar to Cylindra, which derived from this source. It has a rich, earthy sweetness, the smooth skin is easy to peel, and roots hold a long time in the ground without becoming "corky". The strong, healthy tops make great beet greens. -Steve Peters
