Mangel Yellow Eckendorf
Mangels were once grown for feeding to livestock through the winter. Now used for small scale animal feed, especially favoured over Fodder Beet as the texture of Mangel is softer and does not wear down the teeth as fast. Mangel is popular too with wine makers to produce Mangel Wine.
Yellow Eckendorf has large golden orange roots which from its name indicates that it produces high quality roots. It is known to store well in frost free conditions.
