Boltardy Beet (46 days)

2

Germ 5-10 days
Originated in Holland and is now one of the most popular beets in England. Ideal for early sowing because, as the name implies it does not bolt. Color is very strong – thought of as a “high-pigment” beet. Size approaches that of a tennis ball and the sweet, beet flavor is superb. 300 seeds

 

PLANTING:

Indoors – 1/2” deep, 4-6 weeks before the last heavy frost. Sow into individual cells, transplant out as soon as possible (when first true leaves appear.) 3” apart in early spring, as soon as soil can be worked.

Outdoors- Early spring 1/2” deep 1-2” apart with soil temperatures at 50 degrees. Soaking seed overnight aids in germination. Thin seedlings to 3-4” apart.

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.

Tip - Use the thinnings for beet greens or plant a heavily seeded row for baby beet greens. Sow every 2 weeks for a continuous harvest

True to Name

This beet does very well in central Missouri. Does not bolt even in the worst heat. Much better flavor in the early part of summer than when it gets hot but very good.
