How to pick and store beets.

So, what’s the secret to picking the best beets? It all comes down to how they look! Choose beets that have firm, smooth skin and leaves that haven’t yet wilted. We always recommend harvesting beets when they’re about 1 to 1.5 inches in diameter, with greens that are about 6 inches or less. For storing, make sure the root is dry, place in a storage bag, and straight to the crisper in your fridge. They’ll last up to three weeks, give or take.
