Exceptional sweetness. 55 Days to maturity.
Merlin is a hybrid beet that has an exceptional
eating quality and attractive dark green, glossy tops.
Its uniform, round roots have a refined tap root and dark
red interior color that tolerates zoning during drought and
adverse weather. The tall 15 to 17” tops hold their dark green
color throughout the season and lend themselves well to the
fresh bunched beet market. Merlin receives high ratings for
sugar content, and it also has intermediate resistance to
downy mildew and cercospora.
Supplied as treated seed.
