Giant Beets

I was wondering if any of you guys have grown Mammoth Red Mangle or Groundbreaker Beets, if so can you give me any info on them...I seem to becoming up with nil on the 'net. Like how full/tall are the tops and how large do the actual beets get?
Also if anyone out there has any seeds for these, would you like to make a trade?

RE: Giant Beets

I am growing some giant beets this year. They are growing quite well. They are of the mammoth variety. I am hoping to break the world record some day. I purchased my seed from Baker. Good luck,

I am a first year Mammoth beet grower.... they grow very well here in Zone 5. Need much more room than the standard table beet. Mine are about 2X2 feet.

Here is a link that might be useful: image of Mammoth beet
