A fast-growing, vigorous table beet
with big tops, and a smooth round red-purple root.
Incredibly easy to grow, and dependable.
Selected for resistance to Rizoctonia dry rot, as well as big smooth round shape and sweet tender flavor in both root and tops. Bred by organic growers who set out to select an open-pollinated beet that could beat the modern hybrids in both yield and quality.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.
