Product Overview

Beta vulgaris

A very sweet, creamy white beet with mild, delicate flavor that will win you over. DoesnÆt stain and great for juicing!

These sweet beets have a mild flavor that can make a beet lover out of anyone! A 2015 All-America Selections winner with 2"-3" creamy white, round roots. An added bonus—white beets don't stain your hands, cutting board, soups, or stews red! Keep roots covered with soil or mulch for best color and flavor. Disease resistant to Cercospora and leaf spot.

Variety Info

Roots are best harvested at 1"–3" round, but will continue to get larger if allowed. White beets lack the pigment betalain, which imparts an earthy flavor as well as red or yellow color. 'Avalanche' is a 2015 All-America Selections award winner. Plants are resistant to Cercospora and leaf spot.

Sowing Inside

Not recommended. Root disturbance delays maturity.

Sowing Outside

RECOMMENDED. 2 to 4 weeks before your average last frost date, when soil temperature is at least 45°F, ideally 60°–85°F, for early summer crop. 6 to 8 weeks before your average first fall frost date for late summer/fall crop. Mild Climates: Sow fall through winter.
