Avalanche is taking the beet world by storm. These AAS award-winning, snow white roots have all the sweetness of ordinary beets without any bitterness or strong, beety flavor that some folks find too potent to enjoy. At 2-3 inches diameter, the roots are sized nicely for slicing and roasting, can be grated raw into salad, or juiced into the most lip-smacking juice. Avalanche is here to convert even the pickiest eater into a beet enthusiast! (Text courtesy of Territorial Seed).
