A red heirloom variety that originated in Germany in the late 1800’s. It was improved in the USA by Josiah Crosby, who selected to retain the earliness and to remove the rough nature of the original ‘Flat Egyptian’ variety. Harvest young for a baby beet or mature for a large, full sized root. The red veined leaves are also great for eating or stir fries. 220 seeds.
