A great beet to grow for fall harvest. Egyptian beets originated in Germany in the 1800s. This variety was improved through selection for earliness, tender skin and sweetness in Massachusetts by Josiah Crosby in the late 1800s.
Expect good sized, round red beets with flattened tops, and upright greens leaves. Shorter days to maturity over other storage beet types make this a good choice for early fall harvests until the season ends.
