If you're willing to take the path less traveled in the world of beets, sugar beets are great to play around with. Grow your own sugar beets right at home in your garden. Sugar beets are similar to the familiar red-rooted garden beet but are much larger, reaching about 2 to 4 pounds when mature. They tend to have shiny, white roots, and, as you might guess, a high sugar content, containing 13 to 22 percent sucrose. They are a natural sugar source and the world's second-biggest source of sugar, next to sugar cane. Sugar beets are excellent roasted or steamed. Sugar Beet microgreens can be added to salads or used as garnishes. Both the roots and greens are nutritious and very rich in vitamins C, A, and fiber. Very frost tolerant. Tops can grow 1-2' tall. Beet tops can be eaten, lightly grazed, or fed to animals. Any type of beet does not like heat. The optimum temperature is 55-80 degrees. It is essential to keep your seeds moist after you have planted them and be patient. It takes two or three weeks to see sprouts.
