Another beet shaped like a short fat carrot, Danvers Half Long comes to mind. Very similar to Formanova. I prefer the turnip shaped beets.

A very tasty beet, cylindrical in shape, so uniform slices are produced. 58 days from seed. Best planted in cool weather to prevent bolting. Thin seedlings to 6" apart for best crop.
