Lutz Green Leaf Beet, Winter Keeper, Longkeeper
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. Easy to grow. 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 has pink or red stems or foliage. We thank Uprising Organics for making this true strain available to us.
