Baby Gold beets are harvested young for their edible roots, stems, and leaves. The roots are small in size, about the size of a golf ball, and are round with one slender, tapered end. The roots are also connected to long and crisp, leafy green stems, and the root’s skin is semi-rough, orange, and firm with many small hairs covering the surface. Underneath the thin skin, the flesh is bright yellow to gold, dense, and aqueous. Baby Gold beets are crunchy when raw and when cooked, they develop a tender, smooth consistency with a very mild, sweet, and earthy flavor. The beet greens are also edible and have a semi-bitter taste similar to swiss chard.
