Round, quick-growing orange roots
turn gold-yellow when cooked.
Color is deep and glowing, non-bleeding, and easy to use in mixed foods-doesn't stain the cook's fingers either!
Try them in potato salad or for pickles. Sweet taste even when large. Good bolt resistance and stores well.
BOTANICAL NAME: Beta vulgaris
Requires loose fertile soil that is well drained. Likes cooler weather but sunny location. Plant directly into garden where soil has been well-prepared to at least 12" with any stones removed. Soaking seeds several hours in tepid water improves germination. Press soil firmly down on seeds. Thin out seedlings-use as salad greens. Keep well weeded but cultivate shallowly to avoid roots.
