Our Growing Guide to Beets covers planting, growing, and harvesting! A staple in our garden, beets grow easily and you won’t have to wait long until harvest time. They can be harvested from about the size of a golf ball to the size of a tennis ball. And the greens are edible, too!
Beets or “beet root” are a cool-season vegetable that is easy to grow from seed in well-prepared soil—and grows quickly.
If you are a beginner, look out for bolt-resistant varieties. But there are many different varieties which showcase deep red, yellow, or white bulbs of different shapes.
Beets can survive frost and almost freezing temperatures, which makes them a great choice for northern gardeners and an excellent long-season crop.
