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.
