Comment: I received my beet plants and I just planted them so as far as the beets themselves, I can't give a review yet but as far as the plants, they arrived packed so well and fresh. I planted them in a day or so in a container and they seem very happy where they're at. I really hope that they will weather this hurricane that is going to be visiting us over the next few days. I believe that I have protected them pretty well, we'll see!!

Comment: Read reviews about terrible customer service and delivery from June, July. My plants arrived on time and in great shape via FedEx. I had needed to contact customer service and they don’t have a ph# listed On Their website. However they are prompt in replying to customer service requests when you submit via their website. This is first time ordering from Growjoy and will do so again next year.

Comment: I planted Detroit Red Beets a few weeks ago and am already thrilled with the outcome. To begin with, the starts from GrowJoy had more plants than I expected and they plants are already twice their original size. Root vegetable have always been a challenge for me in the rocky and clay-y soil of Pennsylvania, but all the root veggies I have ever ordered from GrowJoy have thrived. I can't wait to pickle in a few weeks!

Comment: The plant looked weak when it arrived. I went ahead and planted it but it has really revived. This is my first attempt at beets so I’m not sure if it takes them awhile to get big and strong.
