In this May 6, 2010 photo, beets for sale are seen at the Farmer's Market, in Dupont Circle, Washington. Many vegetables get woodier, less succulent and lose some of their sweetness as they grow more mature. Some, however, like new potatoes, radishes, baby carrots, zucchini, miniature cucumbers, spring peas, turnips and beets offer up their best flavors while young. (AP Photo/Dean Fosdick)
