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.

Comment: The beet plants arrived in great condition. They were packaged very well and well hydrated upon arrival. I planted them in my raised-bed garden and they are flourishing! They are growing by the day and look so healthy. One month to go until we have our beets - can't wait.
