Badger Gold table beet: an OP golden beet

 

 

Inbred Table Beet W427A and W427B
W427 is an inbred table beet line with excellent exterior smoothness and good uniformity of type. It also has multigerm seed, a round to blocky-shaped root, green foliage, rounded leaves, a small crown and a small taproot. W427A and 427B were derived from the cross [W371 x (W365 x W416)]. W416 and W365 are unreleased inbred lines, while W371 is a smooth and uniform, inbred, multigerm line that was previously released by the University of Wisconsin Table Beet Breeding Program. W427A is a red-anthered sterile and W427B is the maintainer genotype.

BENEFITS:

Excellent exterior smoothness and good uniformity of type

Possesses multigerm seed, a round to blocky-shaped root, green foliage, rounded leaves, a small crown and a small taproot

Suitable for use in both fresh market and processing table beet hybrid cultivars

An Inbred Table Beet (W433) with a Root Suitable for Slicing
The table beet, a popular garden vegetable throughout the United States, is rich in folate, soluble and insoluble fiber, and vitamins A and C. The inventors have developed a new beet variety, called W433, with a cylindrical, straight root that is well suited for slicing. W433 A is the sterile cytoplasm, while W433 B is the fertile maintainer that can be used in hybrid production. Hybrids could be used for both processing and fresh markets.

BENEFITS:

Root shape suitable for slicing

Hybrids should yield well

Inbred Table Beet W434A and W434B
W434 is an inbred table beet line with multigerm seed, a cylindrical root, green/red foliage, intermediate leaves (partially rounded and partially strap-shaped), a small crown, a slightly tapered taproot, good smoothness and uniformity of type. W434A and W434B were obtained from the cross [Forono x (W330 x W416)]; W330 and W416 are unreleased, inbred lines. W434A is a sterile genotype with reddish-brown anthers and W434B is the maintainer genotype.

BENEFITS:

Good smoothness and uniformity of type

Possesses multigerm seed, green/red foliage, a slightly tapered taproot, a small crown and intermediate leaves

Suitable for use in both fresh market and processing table beet hybrid cultivars

Inbred Table Beet W443A and W443B
W443 is an inbred table beet line possessing excellent exterior smoothness and very good uniformity of type. In addition, W443 has mostly multigerm seed with a small portion of duogerm, a round root, green foliage and a good crown. It was derived from the cross W429 x W364. W364 is an inbred line previously released by the University of Wisconsin Table Beet Breeding Program that is multigerm with a smooth, uniform root. For information on table beet line W429, see WARF reference number P01009US. W443A is a sterile genotype with pinkish-brown anthers and 443B is the maintainer genotype.

BENEFITS:

Exceptional exterior smoothness and uniformity of type

Possesses multigerm seed (with a small portion of duogerm), green foliage, a round root and a good crown

Suitable for use in both fresh market and processing table beet hybrid cultivars

Inbred Table Beet W446A and W446B
W446 is an inbred table beet line with a good exterior and uniformity of type. It also possesses multigerm seed, a short cylindrical root, green/red foliage, and a small crown. W446A and 446B were derived from the cross [W364 x (Forono x (W416 x W395))]. W416 and W395 are unreleased inbred lines, while W364 is a multigerm line that was previously released by the University of Wisconsin Table Beet Breeding Program. W446A is a red-anthered sterile and W446B is the maintainer genotype.

BENEFITS:

Good exterior and uniformity of type

Possesses multigerm seed, green/red foliage, a short, cylindrical root and a small crown

Suitable for use in both fresh market and processing table beet hybrid cultivars

A Monogerm Round-type Inbred Table Beet (W448)
The table beet, a popular garden vegetable throughout the United States, is rich in folate, soluble and insoluble fiber, and vitamins A and C. Monogerm beets produce a single flower, while multigerm beets give rise to clusters of two or more flowers. The inventors have developed a monogerm inbred table beet, called W448. This variety results in a round-type beet and is similar to a popular variety available only as a multigerm. W448 A is the sterile cytoplasm, while W448 B is the fertile cytoplasm maintainer to be used in hybrid production. Hybrids could be used for processing or in fresh markets.

BENEFITS:

Monogerm form is beneficial for acheiving uniform planting density

High Pigment Golden Beets
Beets are generally available in two colors: red and golden. Beet color is determined by a class of antioxidant pigments known as betalains, which consists of red-violet betacyanins and yellow betaxanthins. While beets with elevated levels of betacyanins have been produced, no commercially available varieties are high in betaxanthins without also having a high concentration of betacyanins. The only gold-colored beet variety currently available in the U.S. lacks high levels of betaxanthins, has poor seed quality and is not very productive. This invention describes a superior gold beet variety with high levels of betaxanthins. It can be used as a nutritious food as well as a source of betaxanthin pigment.

BENEFITS:

Over 100mg betaxanthin pigment per 100 gm fresh weight of root

Similar maturation times to current commercial beet varieties

Useful as a table food with enhanced nutritional value

Provides a source of yellow pigment
