Product Overview

Beta vulgaris

In just 48 days, you can have an abundant crop of these classic beets, and 'Early Wonder's' tops are considered the best beet greens.

Since 1911, 'Early Wonder' has delivered abundant greens, flavorful beets, and early production. Great for mild climates where multiple crops are possible. The 18" greens are as delicious, and high in vitamins A and C, iron, and potassium. Beet seed is actually a dried fruit with 1-5 seeds in each fruit, so thinning is very important.

Variety Info

Smooth, 1 ½"–2 ½;" diameter with slightly flattened roots. Leaf tops are dark green on red stems. 'Early Wonder', introduced in 1911, is an excellent beet for both greens and roots, ready for harvest in as little as 40 days. Especially good in early spring due to its ability to grow in cool soils.

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.
