Does anyone know if I done anything wrong with growing these Burpees Golden beetroots

Pulled these up this afternoon, are they still edible? From growing them in planter, I've noticed that the top of the beetroots has been in a wrinkly form throughout it growing stages. Never grown them before so not sure how they are suppose to turn out. Obviously not the perfect form. Any advice would be appreciated. Could I stick them back into the soil?

    They’re fine …. not show specimens but they’ll be fine to eat. Enjoy. 


    You can’t replant them … if they lived they’ve had a shock so they’d behave as if it was next year and they’d flower and seed then shrivel and die.

  • We often peel our Beetroots after we have boiled or roasted them.  It makes the skin come off more easily, and they look a bit better.  It's a lovely variety, gorgeous colour on the plate.

    We do exactly the same @KeenOnGreen 😊 … boil or roast them in their skins then the peel comes away in your hands leaving all that colour and flavour behind.

    I cook them in the pressure cooker, cook quickly and lose less flavour,  bonus, saves gas as well.
