Early Wonder Tall Top (Beta vulgaris) is a fast-producing, heirloom beet variety that can go from seed to a baseball-sized beetroot in two months flat (when spring sown). The greens are harvestable in five to six weeks and closely resemble red chard, with long, easy-to-pick. Roots have a delicious flavor that’s to be expected with a workhorse heirloom.
Beets are a biennial crop. Early Wonder will produce harvestable leaves in approximately 45 days and roots in 60 days when seeded under ideal conditions.
