Beet Seeds - Crosby Egyptian
While they may not actually be Egyptian, this variety is still ancient—it originated in Germany in the 1860s. The “Crosby” part of the name comes from Josiah Crosby, the seed seller who selected this variety. These beets have been incredibly popular for generations and are a sure bet for sweet, tasty roots! This beet yields a lot and it matures early, so it’s great for fall storage. Plant anywhere from early in the season to late summer, or stagger plantings if you really love beets. Beta vulgaris. 60 days to maturity.
