Can we eat em?
Should we eat em?

Cooked, raw, deep fried?

Yes! Yes!
I have had to rescue them from the fruttovendolo here, so N Umbria isn't a
hotbed of beet green eating.
I put the beets in the bottom of a steamer and cook them almost done (never
peel them before and leave some stem on the beet,) then put the greens in
the top and steam them. They were a regular in New England. We all loved
them. My mother served them with melted butter and vinegar, but to me they
need nothing.
