Early Wonder Tall Top Organic Beets Harvesting Instructions:
For best flavor, harvest roots while they are 1-3" in diameter. To minimize moisture loss in the roots, twist off the greens. Remove dirt in water before eating the roots, globes, and leaves. Roots store well in humid, cool conditions. Prepare leaves like spinach - either boiled, sautéed, or tossed into salad. Greens should be eaten within 1-2 days of picking and are best when they are 4-6" long and the roots are less than 2" in diameter. Beet globes are best when picked at baseball size and can be pickled, grilled, baked, or broiled.
