An heirloom varierty, the red leaves can be used in salads, while the beetroot has a sweet, earthy, nutty flavour! Can also be used as a homemade food dye :) Can be harvested for baby salad leaves in just over a month! In September you can sow them under cover for a harvest of baby beets before the first frost, or outdoors for use as a salad leaf. If the conditions are right and you protect the plants from hard frosts with a deep mulch, you can also be rewarded with full grown beetroot in February/March from a September planting.
Beetroot Organic Seeds
Sow: April - Sept
Plant: May - Oct
Harvest: Year round
Note: if sowing later in the season, they will grow better in a polytunnel or greenhouse. We've even had them overwinter in an unheated polytunnel during a mild winter, so you may be able to push the boundaries if you live in a coastal location.
