60 days. Nesvizhskaya (nes-VEET-skya) This white sugar beet from Belarus tests 0% for Genetically Modified Organisms. It has a 17%-18% brix sugar content and is vigorous and productive root. Cook down to make sugar, or eat like a beet or beet greens. We are grateful local farmer Jonathan Spero has made this variety available to all transitioning to homestead life.
Our Southern Oregon community mourns the recent loss of Jonathan who was a visionary plant breeder and friend. We will deeply miss him as a seedsman, teacher and fellow activist who dedicated his life to protecting seeds and keeping them in the hands of farmers and local communities that depend on them.
