German for “Fire Ball”, this beet came out on top of the beet trials at Whidby Island’s Greenbank Farm Center (now Organic Farm School) for two consecutive years. Vigorous plants yield refined red round roots and a healthy top of greens. Milder in flavor than “Shiraz”, the roots feature a very light zoning to the flesh when cut crosswise. Excellent as a market bunching variety.
