Lutz Green Leaf Beet, Winter Keeper, Longkeeper
Back for 2022! These can get very big and still stay tender and sweet. Exceptionally sweet, even when very large, due to some sugar beet in its parentage. Keeps exceptionally well. Leaves are green, mild-flavored, and prolific. Avram Drucker of Garlicana in Oregon, said, “If I had to pick only one [beet] variety for homesteading, there’s just no question that this is it.” With an early beet for summer and this long-season beet for fall and winter storage, you have months and months of sweet, ultra-nutritious eating. These can become irregular in shape when grown to large sizes; they are not as uniform as smaller rounder types. Easy to grow. Our seed grown by Tim Van Wagner at First Rain Farm. 120 seeds
This is the true, sweet-flavored, green-leaf Lutz. Most of the seed on the market has been crossed and now most "Lutz" seed on the market has pink or red stems. We thank Uprising Organics for making this true strain available to us.
