ORBIT

« Back

Producing highly uniform round roots, ORBIT is a reliable variety which produces quality beets all year round. The roots are slightly smaller in size than Red Ace, but have better consistency of root size and shape. ORBIT can be harvested as loose roots and is also suitable for bunching due to the strong tops which are erect in habit and of mid height. The roots are deep purple/red in colour throughout the internal flesh.
