Beta vulgaris (100 days) Fodder beets have been around since the 1400s if not earlier. These beets were prized as nutritious animal feed that was easy to store. Fodder beets are hardy, adaptable and palatable. They are ideal for planting in late summer for use as a winter and spring crop. It's surprising how juicy and sweet these giant beets are!
1940 Oscar H. Will Pure Seed Book says... "The heaviest yielder and most popular of all Mangels the light red roots are pinkish fleshed and grow well out of the ground. Yields run as high as fifty tons to the acre."
This is a sure way to put away enough food for your animals as they face the cold winter. Leave them in the ground and harvest as needed. Unless you are covered with snow, then I suggest you root cellar them.
We are going to experiment next year with feeding the tops and roots to our rabbits. Supposed to be really good for them and an excellent source of nutrients the homesteader can grow. Pigs, cows, horses and goats love them! Also, a great use for these amazing root vegetables is for home brewing! Many fruit beers or wines utilize the sugar content to create alcohol. With lots of sugar in them, they can make a fine old fashioned beer.
