Golden beets are a beautiful golden-orange color throughout. They stay tender-fleshed and are particularly sweet and mild in taste, whether pulled very young or allowed to size up. Their tops also make great tasting greens. Golden beets do not “bleed” color when cooked or pickled. Whether steamed or baked, they make a handsome color accent in salads or simply served by themselves. These specialty beets are popular with both chefs and home cooks for their delicate flavor and color.

Start Seeds Outdoors In early spring when danger of hard frost is over, sow seeds in well-worked, fertile soil in full sun. Sow seeds 1 in. apart and 1/2 in. deep in rows 8-10 in. apart, or broadcast thinly for bed planting. Firm soil well over these irregularly shaped seeds to ensure good germination. If first sowing comes up unevenly, sow more seeds as seedlings will catch up fast. Carefully thin when seedlings are large enough to handle to 3-4 in. apart so roots have room to grow and mature.

For tender, best quality beets, sow seeds before midsummer heat and again in late summer to early fall at least 10 weeks before fall frosts. Keep soil evenly moist throughout the growing season. Be sure to thin beet seedlings carefully several times as they grow best when given enough room.

Harvest and Use: After thinning seedlings, use tender young tops for nutritious, flavorful steamed greens. Harvest baby beets at 1-2 in. in diameter, or let roots grow as large as desired. Garden fresh beets cook quickly. They are delicious steamed, boiled or baked whole in their skins like potatoes, then peeled for wonderful color and sweet concentrated flavor. Golden color does not "bleed" like red beets.
