While I’ve never actually seen anyone eat them for breakfast (we eat them like this any time of the day!), they are traditionally split lengthwise and drizzled with butter or olive oil, a sprinkle of salt, and served as a simple but elegant appetizer or palate cleanser between dishes in a meal. Oblong roots are crisp and sweet, 2/3 scarlet red with a white tip. Best harvested as young roots about ¾” diameter to avoid pithiness. Some breeders have steered this variety towards a very long, slender form but our preference is for roots approx 2.5" long by 3/4" diameter at prime harvest. We've done a lot of selection work on this one over many years.
