How to Grow

60 seed/gram. Beets thrive in sandy loam with a pH of 6.0 to 7.5. Remember to fertilize. For a continual harvest, sow seeds 1.2 cm (1/2") deep and 2.5 cm (1") apart in two-week intervals beginning when the soil has warmed to 7 C (45 F) and avoid sowing after mid-July. As each beet "˜seed' is actually a corky fruit with 2 to 5 seeds contained within, it is important to thin the young seedlings to 7-10 cm (3-4") apart to provide enough room for proper root formation. Use plants that are thinned as a source of tender, edible greens. Over-watering or excessive rainfall may lead to excessive leaf growth and pale or small roots. One packet sows approximately 6 m (20') of row.
