Sowing Months Harvest Months

1 packet (250 beetroot seeds) (VKA54018)

  • Sow outdoors, thinly, 1cm (1/2in) deep in drills 30cm (12in) apart.
  • Thin out seedlings when large enough to handle to 5cm (2in) apart.
  • Later thinnings will be suitable for using in salads.
  • Harvest when roots reach about 4cm (11/2in) in diameter or more. The smaller the root the better the quality.
  • Beet can be stored by lifting the remaining roots; twist off the tops and store in boxes of slightly damp sand in frost-free conditions.
  • Roots are rich in potassium, folate and Vitamin C. Tops can be eaten, when young, like spinach and are rich in beta-carotene, calcium and iron.
