For baby and large beets
Globe shaped with great tasting, deep red flesh. Lift young as 'baby beets' or leave to mature. Multigerm variety. (Will most likely produce clusters of seedlings.)
Sow & Grow:
Outdoors: Sow thinly, April-July, where they are to crop, 2.5cm (1") deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-cultivated, fertile soil, which has already been watered. Allow 30cm (1') between rows. Seedlings usually appear in 7-21 days. Thin seedlings to 10cm (4") apart. Water well until plants are established. Regular sowings, made every three weeks, should ensure a continuous supply of young beets. Harvest: July-October.
Hints & Tips:
For baby beet, lift when the size of golf balls. Twisting off the leaves prevents 'bleeding.'
Care & Cultivation:
Harvested roots can be stored in dry sand for winter use
