A pure white heirloom beet from Holland. Unusual and tasty — the greens are good too! May be used for making sugar. (55 days)
Sow successive crops all season long, starting 2 to 4 weeks before last frost in spring, and continuing until one month before first frost in fall. (Sowings in intense mid-summer heat may not germinate as well.) Sow where plants are to grow — 1/2 inch deep, 4 to 6 inches apart — in full sun and neutral (non-acid) soil.
Most “seeds” are really capsules containing multiple seeds, so thinning to single plants is necessary. If thinned gradually, the thinnings can be enjoyed as greens. Keep soil evenly moist. When mature, harvest and store in the refrigerator or root cellar.
