Organic Cylindra Beet (Beta vulgaris)
A delectable Danish heirloom also known as Formanova. With a long, cylindrical shape, this dark red favorite is excellent for slicing. Sweet, rich, and simple to peel, this easy-to-grow variety is particularly productive in smaller spaces because its roots grow downward not sideways.
