TOUCHSTONE GOLD (Beta vulgaris) is not an heirloom (yet) but is so preferred over the heirloom yellow beets I chose to list this "new" open-pollinated variety for a few good reasons. First, its ease of germination far surpasses its predecessors with a much highe yield. Second, its flavor, a creamy juicy sweet flesh with crisp texture. Producing uniform 4" globes with rosy yellow exterior and gorgeous gold on the interior. With bright green foliage that is also succulent and delicious. 55 days. 50 Seeds.
