1102-CO Beta vulgaris

(Tops, roots) 55-60 days roots.

Detroit Dark Red has certainly been the mainstay of our winter storage and canning crop, with delicious and tender, round, red roots. Tops are tasty, too! Heritage, from 1892.

~50-60 seeds/g


(Collets, racines) racines produites entre 55 et 60 jours. De toutes les types de betteraves cultivées  dans les jardins canadiens, je suis convaincue que celle-ci jouie le plus de la pollinisation libre.  Elle a été le soutient principal de nos réserves d’hiver et de notre récolte pour mise en conserve, avec des racines rondes, rouges, tendres et délicieuses.  Les collets sont aussi très savoureux.  Une semence de patrimoine qui date de 1892.
