Beta Vulgaris

The exception to the rule - the round, sweet flavoured roots are a golden-yellow colour! The luscious leaves are green with golden stems. Many people consider the leaves of the Golden Beet superior in flavour to many spinach varieties. Because flesh is yellow there is minimal "bleeding" to discolour other ingredients in salads. In very high demand with gourmet chefs-order early, we always sell out quickly! A real winner right from the time it was introduced in the 1940's.

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.
