How to Store Beets and Beet Greens

freshly harvested beets

There are many things to love about root veggies, and here’s one of my favorites: roots with their greens is like a two-for-one deal!

That’s right, beet greens are edible and delicious and oh-so-good for you.

To make sure you get in on all this goodness, however, you need to store them properly.

Beets should be stored separately from their greens. Trim the greens about one inch from the top of the beet, keeping the entire beet intact.

Store the beets in an airtight bag or container in the fridge. Store the greens in a separate airtight bag or container.
