Storage Tip: Cut off greens leaving 1-2 inches at base. Store beets and greens separately. Greens are highly perishable so eat them right away or store in plastic in the fridge for up to 2 days. The beets themselves last up to 3 weeks if stored in a perforated plastic bag in the fridge. Once cooked, beets last up to a week in the fridge.
