Description

Beet - Cylindra - Beta vulgaris (Crassa group)

Biennial These smooth skinned, dark-red beets are excellent for slicing. They are sweet and fine grained. Roots are cylindrically shaped, 6"-8" long, and 2"-3" diameter.

Did You Know? One beet has only 35 calories and is high in folic acid (especially important for pregnant women).

Soil & Water: Beets are easily grown; they prefer deep, loose soil and even, moderate water. Mulch once established to protect the roots from heat.

Planting & Growing: Soak seeds for at least 12 hours before planting to promote germination. Space 2" for greens, 3" for summer harvest beets, and 4" for storage growing beets. Tolerates light shade.
