58 days. Beta vulgaris. Open Pollinated. The plant produces good yields of exceptional quality 3" diameter dark red globe shaped beets.

Green tops are delicious too. Stores well. It can be planted in the spring for an early summer crop or late summer for a fall crop. An excellent choice for home gardens.

Beet Seeds Planting Information:

Beets do not do well in poor soil or clay soil, so prepare the soil by adding compost and manure. They thrive in cooler regions. Plant your seeds outdoors directly in the garden. Planting should occur as soon as soil can be worked and 1 week after last frost. Plant in 2 to 3 weeks intervals for a steady harvest until about 2 months before first killing frost in the fall. Plants can grow 2" to 12" tall.

Soil Requirements:

Requires loose fertile soil that is slightly alkaline in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.

Water Requirements:

Keep soil uniformly moist and from drying out.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Periodically apply Miracle Gro.

Harvest Tips:

Dig or pull roots when 2" or greater. You can harvest beets for greens at any time. Leave fall crop in the ground until needed or when soil begins to freeze.
