A great favourite in the gardening community due to its excellent bolt-resistance. Has a nice even shape and great deep red colour but also has excellent flavour and texture.
Sow thinly outdoors between March-July, 2.5cm deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-cultivated, fertile soil, which has already been watered. Allow 30cm between rows. Seedlings usually appear in 7-21 days. Thin seedlings to 10cm apart. Water well until plants are established. Regular sowings, made every three weeks, should ensure a continuous supply of young beets. Harvest between June to October.
