Red Cloud Beet (F1 Hybrid 50 Days)

A dark red, vigorous growing beet with a well-attached top of good color. It is very resistant to bolting and a single planting can be harvested over a long season. What really sold us on this variety was the exceptionally sweet flavor and fine texture. It is also a good choice for greens. 

100 seeds

PLANTING

Beta vulgaris

Germination: 5-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 50-85ºFSoaking seed overnight aids in the germination.

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/2” deep

Starting Indoors: 4-6 weeks before the last frost. Sow 1-2 seeds per cell/pot. Thin to 1 seedling per cell/pot. Transplant outdoors when the first true leaves appear, 3” apart.

Sowing Outdoors: Early spring with soil temperatures at least 50ºF. Sow 1-2” apart, thin when plants are 2-4” tall, 3-4” apart. Germination is slower at lower soil temperatures.

How much does a packet plant: 20-25 foot single row  

Harvest: Begin picking at 1” for baby beets and up to 3” across for the most tender and best tasting. For best storage cut off the greens 2” above the top of the beet.

Tips: Beets “seeds” are actually fruits that contain multiple seeds inside with several seedlings emerging from one seed. Use the thinned seedlings for beet greens or plant a heavily seeded row for baby beet greens. Beets need to grow rapidly and evenly by providing soil rich in organic matter and adequate moisture. Sow every 2 weeks for a continuous harvest.

Red Cloud beet

So far the beets are growing very vigorously. Germination rate was very high. It is now a matter of seeing the final result in about six weeks.

Red Cloud Beet

I’ve tried half a dozen varieties of beets, always searching for the ‘perfect’ beet. This is it, no need to keep looking. Love the flavor, texture and shape. They are tender from baby stage till fall, never getting woody or overly earthy tasting.

Red Cloud Beet

I grow beets in my garden every year. I usually grow Detroit Reds. Last year I grew Red Cloud. Red Cloud is by far and away the best beet I have grown. Just absolutely beautiful specimens. I am growing them again this year and I recommend them.
