Post  OhioGardener 10/8/2022, 10:20 am

I see a lot of comments regarding some people not liking beets because of their earthy taste. While I enjoy the taste of them, I also like to experiment with new varieties of vegetables.  This fall I tried a new variety, the Golden Beet. What a difference!  It not only does not have the earthy taste of the red beets, but it actually has a sweet taste.

If you want a real treat, bake them!  This can also be done with red beets, but the golden beets are extortionary when roasted. Simply cut the tops and roots off of the beets, wash them with a vegetable brush, place them in a baking dish so that the beets do not touch each other, then bake at 350ºF for an hour to hour and a half. Let them cool to touch, and peel the beets. They are delicious either warm or cold.

These are the ones I grew this year: https://www.rareseeds.com/golden-beet

Fortunately, I did not experience that with the seeds I planted. As with all beet seeds, I soaked them over night in warm water with a couple drops of EM-1 and sitting on a seedling heat mat.  I would estimate the germination rate at 90% to 95% for these seeds.

Thank you for sharing. I'm growing Bull's Blood again this fall. I found it less nauseating than Detroit Dark Red, the only other variety I tried. You can tell I'm not much of a beet fan unless they are pickled and on a salad. If I'm successful, maybe I will try the golden beet for roasting.
