Red Beets/ Sugar Beets


Sugar beets are a root crop, and flourish in temperate climates where the growing season is about five months long. A mature sugar beet is about one foot long, weighs two to five pounds, and contains about 18% sucrose, which is concentrated in its taproot. Sucrose is a carbohydrate that occurs naturally in fruits, vegetables, and other agricultural crops, but occurs at greater levels in sugar beets and sugarcane.
