A productive and dependable ‘Detroit’ type that is easy to grow with sweet and firm roots
Lift young as ‘baby beets’ or leave to mature.
Sow outdoors thinly where they are to crop, 2.5cm (1″) deep directly into finely prepared 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. Harvested roots can be stored in dry sand for winter use.
Hints: For baby beets lift when the size of goft balls. Twisting off the leaves prevents bleeding.
Soil Type: Fertile, moisture retentive soil
