Eagle Beet(25-35 baby, 55 days full size) F-1 hybrid. Of the Early Wonder class with quick root growth and tall bright green tops, Eagle soared in our 2018 summer beet trials. While many OP and hybrid comparisons struggled to size up in the early dry heat, steady vigorous Eagle bore bunch-worthy round baby beets with proud tops. Later, when humidity brought rampant Cercospora leaf disease that eliminated many trial-mates from consideration, Eagle, Kestrel and Red Ace glided through to maturity with nary a spotted leaf. When cooked, Eagle’s dark red globes turn a solid dusky crimson with the deep red inside showing only slight hints of zoning. Taste and texture is perfect: simply sweet and smooth, no bitterness even when grown in stressful conditions. For fresh summer use; not for long storage. Very high resistance to bolting. ⑤ NEW!
