Description

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.

Approx. Seeds per Pack: 50-55 Seeds

Planting & Care

Planting: In early spring, when danger of hard frost is over, sow seeds in well-worked, fertile soil in full sun. Space seeds 1" apart in rows 8" - 10" apart, or broadcast thinly for bed planting. Firming soil well over these irregularly shaped seeds will ensure best germination. If first sowing comes up unevenly, sow more seeds as seedlings will catch up fast. When large enough to handle, carefully thin seedlings to 2" - 4" apart so growing beets have room to size up.

Growing: For best quality, tender roots, sow seeds before midsummer heat and again in late summer to early fall — in cold climates, allow at least 10 weeks before fall frosts. Keep soil evenly moist throughout the season. Be sure to thin seedlings several times when plants are small, as beets grow best if given enough room.

Harvest & Use: After thinning seedlings, use tender young tops for nutritious, flavorful steamed greens. Harvest baby beets at 1" - 2" 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.
