The interior is delightful - it has alternating rings of color in shades of red or bright pink to white. Perfect for eating fresh, roasting and pickling. To retain markings, bake beets whole and slice just before serving. Certified organic.
Soil Temp. for Germination: 50-75°F
Days to Maturity: 65
Sowing Outdoors: Direct sow 4-6 weeks before your average last frost date. Summer harvests are generally of poor quality when seeds are sown after mid-July.
Growing Tips: When germinating seeds, it is very important that you keep the soil moist to prevent crusting over, which causes poor emergence. Temperature and moisture stress can cause zoning (internal rings) as well as premature bolting.
What's In The Package: 5 grams of seeds.
