Beets from my garden

Zone Pueblo West, CO | barbara.herrick added on August 11, 2017 | Answered

The beets in our garden got away from us and grew to the size of a slightly deflated basketball. Are these still edible? Would they explode if I tried to cook them in my instant pot pressure cooker?

Based on my research, they are still edible although they may not be as tender or sweet as their younger counterparts.
