Beetroot ‘Golden Detroit’ Vegetable Seeds

Botanical Name: Beta vulgaris

Heirloom golden yellow beet inside and out with light green yellow-veined tops. Both the roots and the tops are sweet and tender with a milder flavor than red beetroot, and they do not bleed when cut. The young leaves are excellent as a microgreen and in salad mix.

Sow beetroot spring to autumn, in mild areas all year round is possible. Sow directly where it is to grow, 12 mm deep in rows 30 cm apart. Keep the soil moist. Thin out to 10 cm apart, each seed yields multiple plants, so thinnings can be transplanted or used as ‘baby’ salad greens. Beetroot is a heavy feeder, prepare the soil by adding compost or organic fertiliser, pH should be neutral to slightly alkaline. Start harvesting when still ‘baby beet’ size, older roots can get woody. The leafy tops are useful as cooked greens.
