Grown in clay?

Bought a few times for the "Organic" part. However, just because something is grown Organically does not necessarily mean it's better. Quality of soil would be another key thing. I can only guess, but these appear to have been grown in some sort of clay judging by the stuff glued to the outside. Nightmare to wash off, sticky, grey substance. To the best of my knowledge the nutritional value of heavily clay based soils is not great, meaning that the nutritional value of stuff grown in it is similarly not great, whether grown organically or not. All very small as well, which if anything confirms my opinion of the soil quality. I'll go for the non-organic beetroot from now on, as the nutrition is going to be far higher. Sad that this is true - don't just sell something because it is "organic", sell it because it is grown "organically" and in good quality conditions. Otherwise it's not worth the O word at all!

Full of mud

I have ordered them twice and both times they came really muddy. I do not expect them to be sterile of course, but there is a limit. My kitchen sink was full of mud after washing them.

50% were rotten

Only half were usable as the other half were rotten with holes through them...

Rating: 3 star out of 5

75% ok

Had these a number of times now and usually get four and a least one needs throwing away. This time, two have holes running through them which once cooked/cut depending on what you do with them, shows burrow holes and sometimes, an insect!

High quality

Really pleased with these, the freshest I have found from a delivery service/supermarket. They remained hard for two weeks in the crisper. I use these in a salad, grated raw. They are well cleaned and the skin tender enough to be used which saves prep time and is economical. The flesh is very sweet and not dry at all. Received five evenly sized beets. One of which was rotten inside due to an insect having burrowed into it, hence four stars not five. But the overall quality was so high I do not feel to complain.
