Description

Heirloom Vegetable. Is it any wonder that this variety is a gardener’s friend – its quick to mature so you can harvest the sweet, deep red, tender roots then re-plant the area with other more heat-loving vegetables. The smooth-skinned, round to semi-globular roots are exceptionally uniform in shape and interior colour. A favourite variety for greens. Introduced around 1911.

How to Grow

60 seed/gram. Beets thrive in sandy loam with a pH of 6.0 to 7.5. Remember to fertilize. For continual harvest, sow seeds 1.2 cm (1/2″) deep and 2.5 cm (1″) apart in two week intervals beginning when the soil has warmed to 7 C (45 F) and avoid sowing after mid July. As each beet seed is actually a corky fruit with 2 or 3 seeds contained within, it is important to thin the young seedlings to 7–10 cm (3–4″) apart to provide enough room for proper root formation. Use plants that are thinned as a source of tender, edible greens. Over-watering or excessive rainfall may lead to excessive leaf growth and pale or small roots. One packet sows approximately 6 m (20’) of row.
