Delish. The beets have always been sweet for us, even when we accidentally let one or two turn into giant softball sized beets. The greens cook up well, as some of the other people here have mentioned.

From your friends at Botanical Interests: Early wonder is considered to be the best beet for greens. The tops can reach 18” tall, giving you plenty of salad greens, greens to substitute for spinach or Swiss chard in recipes, and to steam or freeze for later use. Packed with nutrition, 1 cup of greens has more iron than a hamburger patty! Early Wonder’s beet roots are also very flavorful and produce quickly (in as little as 48 days). An excellent choice for northern and southern climates where multiple crops are possible. Grows well in the garden and as a container vegetable.

I prefer this beet to Detroit. It is early, the beet greens are succulent and the root has less tendency to become woody than Detroit Dark Red. Color is lighter than the Detroit. Very similar to Crosby's Early Egyptian which I also like.
