Beet, Shiraz, 

Beta vulgaris (60 days) 

Fast growing; big-tops, smooth round, red roots with outstanding vigor. The sweet, dark red roots are incredibly smooth due to their disease resistance. Our best beet for roasting, boiling or canning! As a result of multiple rounds of vigorous selection by ace farmer, Randy Carey of Williams Creek Organics in Oregon, in conjunction with plant breeder John Navazio, they are quite Rhizoctonia-resistant, which helps to ensure beautiful smooth roots.  Further Selection done by farmer Bill Reynolds of Eel River Produce in Humbodlt county, CA.

An excellent fresh market strain- soon to become a choice heirloom of the future!
