Early Wonder Organic Beet Seeds 4015. Heirloom Vegetable.

Approx. 170 seeds/pkt (60 seeds/gram)

Elongated roots are slightly flattened, semi-globe shaped with a smooth skin and solid flesh. Flesh is very sweet and tender with excellent uniformity and interior quality. Early Wonder comes up very quickly – even in cool soil. The tops make very good early season beet greens. Introduced around 1911.

How to Grow

Sow seed directly into the garden 1.25 cm (1/2″) deep in rows 30-45 cm (12-18″) apart. Successive sowings as late as the first of July helps extend the harvest. Beets produce a compound seed which means each seed can produce up to 4 sprouts so thinning is essential for good root formation – thin seedlings to 10 cm (4″) apart – you can use the tops of thinned beets as a source of baby greens. Irrigation is important during dry spells up until the roots begin to swell. Fertilizer improves quality and size of roots.
