55-70 day. A Danish heirloom beet, cylindra or formanova is a long cylindrical deep red beet. This makes it great for slicing, producing more uniform slices than a traditional beet. It also has a wonderful, fined grained texture and a great sweet flavor when roasted. It is an excellent choice for canning, pickling, or roasting. My favorite way to serve beets is to make grilled beet chips. I slice them, toss with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and sea salt and grill them until they are crisp and browned.
