Lutz Green Leaf Beet Seeds 1277. Heirloom Vegetable.

Approx. 300 seeds/pkt (60 seeds/gram)

This beet is valued for both its lush, glossy foliage that makes for a superb green and for its large sweet roots. This is an excellent multi-purpose beet variety with large roots that can grow to 15 cm (6″) wide without getting woody.

How to Grow

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 to 5 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.
