58-65 days to harvest Beta vulgaris

If chioggia were a rosé rainbow! We love the soft salmon, bright crimson, deep magenta and pearlescent pink rings of Evansville Orbit. Just like each of us, each root is unique and nourishes beyond the delight of each bite. Even the leaves and stems express a glorious kaleidoscope of green, burgundy and pink. An abundant beet in any season, we sow Evansville Orbit early spring through late summer, savoring them from baby to softball-sized roots. They also store beautifully through winter with classic beet flavor, rich & sweet: Delectable diversity, indeed!

We are endlessly grateful for the vivid imagination of our dear friend Solveig Hanson who selected this beet alongside dozens of farmers and eaters in Evansville, Wisconsin as she studied beet breeding and flavor with Irwin Goldman at University of Wisconsin, Madison. Blushing Not Bashful and Evansville Ember also emerged from Solveig’s love as well as labor! We’re grateful, too, for the untold generations of both humxn and beet who have co-adapted with each other for millennia.

Enjoy the behind-the-scenes story of this incredible new beet here!
