Beet has always been a South African favourite, it is easy to prepare and also nutritious. Sakata recently included a yellow variety, named Touchstone Gold to their beet range. The beet producer growing beet for either the fresh market, baby beet market or topped yellow beet market will love Touchstone Gold with its very early maturity, outstanding uniformity, round shape and high quality roots.
Touchstone Gold has a vibrant golden yellow internal colour with a very mild and sweet taste. The yellow pigment does not stain as the normal red pigment and the golden yellow flesh retain its colour when cooked. Touchstone Gold can be roasted, boiled or is ideal for fresh eating.
