Description

  • Sweet, tender beets best picked young.
  • Long harvest period.
  • Bolt-resistant

Produces smooth-skinned, round beets which are wonderfully tender and are ideal for growing in patio pots.

Sown thickly the beets will retain their round shape as they develop. Begin harvesting beets when they are about 2.5cm (1in) in diameter for deliciously sweet and tender crops. We recommend you pull a 'pilot' beetroot at the end of the row to check.

This variety is bolt resistant, great news for those that live in exposed sites or where the weather is variable. 

Harvest your beets when they are young for the best flavour. We recommend you seed little and often to extend the harvest period.

How to Guide

Sow outdoors

March-August: Sow direct into the required harvest position, 2.5cm (1 in) deep. Keep soil moist at all times to prevent roots becoming dry and woody.  Thin out to 5cm (2in).

 

Plant out

Use thinnings in baby leaf salads. Use fleece to protect crop from frost or cold wind. Twist off the tops to prevent “bleeding".  Sow a little and often for a long harvest period.
