The beets I bought this year were $2.00 more per bushel than quoted over the phone when I ordered. When I picked them up the 1/2 bushel boxes they put them in were 3/4 full. After weighing them at home I found that they the two half bushel boxes only weighed 30 lbs. PA Dept. of Agriculture says that there are 54 pounds in a bushel of beets. I called the business and complained and they said they didn't sell them by weight but by volume. When I said that I questioned the clerk as to why the boxes were not full she said that they "settled". The manager finally admitted that they go by 45 pounds per bushel for beets and that meant that I was still 15 pounds short. She did give me the 15 pounds of beets the following week, but the hassle I had to go through to get what I rightfully paid for makes me think twice before I buy produce there again.
