Dutch Beets

We import seed for these true mini beets directly from Holland where baby beets are a kitchen staple. Perfectly rounded Baby Balls size up quickly to produce sweet, tender, petite sized beets to harvest early, at just 1 to 11⁄ 2 inches in diameter. Vitamin rich and delicious, the little globes cook up fast and are just the right size for whole pickled beets. Plant again for a fall crop of smooth skinned and uniform pretty babies to steam or bake to perfection.

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 inch apart and 1/2 inch deep in rows 8 inches apart, or broadcast thinly for bed planting. Firm soil well over these irregularly shaped seeds to ensure good germination. If first sowing germinates unevenly, plant more seed in the rows as seedlings will catch up fast. Carefully thin when seedlings are large enough to handle to 3 to 4 inches apart so roots have room to grow and mature.

GROWING NOTES

For tender, best quality beets, sow seeds before midsummer heat and again in 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

Harvest baby beets at 1 to 1 1/2 inches in diameter, or let some mature into full-sized beets. Briefly steam the tender-sweet tops for tasty greens. Freshly picked baby beets will cook very quickly; just steam, then peel and serve them with a little sweet butter and a sprinkle of chopped parsley or fresh dill leaf. Or try your own pickled baby beets!
