Not as expected

By: on 22 March 2016
This is the first time I have grown Cylindra Beetroot. They only grew about 2" in length, was expecting double that. I will stick to the Round beetroot in the future. Although these were good roasted, my partner liked these milder tasting ones better than the stronger earthiness of the round ones.
