Harvesting beets

If you have a small amount of garden space and need a crop that is versatile, beets should be your crop of choice.

Growing Beets for Farmers Markets and Restaurants

We have found that restaurants love to use the "baby" leaves in different types of recipes. You can grow the beets all year so, there is a reliable crop to provide your markets. The larger leaves are used in about he same way as Chard.

The type of beet/s we grow to sell is Detroit and sometimes Golden. Detroit is dependable while Golden is "gourmet." The size of the beet depends on your customer. Some restaurants prefer the "baby" beet while others want a larger beet to slice and quick pickle. Farmers Markets are usually individuals that are looking for a "pickling" size.
