    Beet Production

    Douglas Sanders (January, 2001)

    Beets have been cultivated for centuries. Though grown mostly for the roots, beet greens are also popular in many areas. Beets are a common item in vegetable gardens, but few are produced in North Carolina. Table beets obtain their best color and quality when grown in a cool climate. In North Carolina, they are best grown as a spring or fall crop. This fact sheet provides basic production, post-harvest handling and grading, and storage procedures in North Carolina.
