Product Description
Have we got a beet for you! Even those who say they don't like beets find they can't get enough of Avalanche. This 2015 All-America Selections award winner boasts a very mild, sweet flavor that is worlds away from the earthiness of traditional red or golden beets. There is no bitter aftertaste and of course, no stained hands thanks to Avalanche's creamy white flesh. Enjoy these beets like you would red beets--raw, sliced into salads or cooked in your favorite dishes. Try roasting them along with other root veggies such as parsnips and carrots for a sweet and savory side dish. 50 days to maturity.
