Touchstone Gold Beet (Organic 55 Days)

Slice open the pale orange spherical roots for sunshine golden flesh that has a delectable sweet taste, raw or cooked. It keeps its marvelous color during the cooking process so afterward it can shine bright on a dinner plate. Touchstone performs well in the garden and is notably more reliable than other golden type beets.

Touchstone Gold Beet (Organic 55 Days)

 

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: 15-20 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.

Growing golden beets

I bought 3 packages of beet seeds, two golden and 1 white. All have grown wonderfully and my yield has never been better. Will keep buying your seeds every year.

At last, beet success!

Have never had any luck in my garden with traditional red beets, but decided to give these a try. They germinated well, matured quickly and taste great. Will plant extra next season!

Swiss chard in the beet package?

In years past I have been very satisfied with this product. Two years ago however, they did not grow at all. They germinated and then inexplicably died, even after replanting. Everything else in my garden did fairly well, so I don't know what happened. Last year, I tried again. this time I got big beautiful plants, but then I realized it was all Swiss chard! I don't know if it was a mix-up in packaging or what. I know I didn't mix my packages up because I also got Swiss chard as expected where I planted from the Swiss chard packet of seeds. I am trying again this year, and hopefully will get golden beets!
