Beta vulgaris sp.
Early Wonder Tall Top: Adaptable to all seasons, it forms 3-4 inch, deep red globes with tall, glossy leaves that make choice, tasty greens. A good all around beet that also pickles well. Perfect for early spring planting, exhibiting vigorous growth in cool soils. Its staggered maturity allows an extended harvest from a single sowing. Detroit Dark Red Short Top: 60 days. For a versatile, all-around superb beet for eating fresh or canning, it's hard to top Detroit Dark Red Short Top. These mid-sized roots are tender and sweet, with a smooth, round shape and rich scarlet color.
Not sure which one this is because I scatter plant beets. Both do well in the Texas weather. Raised garden box.
