Lutz Long Season Beet (a.k.a. Winter Keeper, Lutz Green Leaf) grows very large, but no matter how big they get, they do not get tough or woody even at an enormous size. The large roots are very sweet, and whether the beets are young or old, small or large, they remain tender all summer and fall, keep in fine condition all winter, and have an unmatched old-time flavor. One of the best heirloom beets for long-term storage. The purple-red roots are round to somewhat elongated, and they can be harvested at almost any stage. The huge, glossy green, pink-veined, chard-like tops are also delicious, so they were very popular as a cooked vegetable, and the roots are huge and red with excellent storage qualities. An old variety that was popular with the Amish and Mennonites for generations. One of the best. 80 Days.
