Bulls Blood Beet (Heirloom, 50 Days)

3 reviews

Heirloom 1840’s
Brilliant, red burgundy leaves are visually appealing in the garden and on the plate. Sliced open ,the roots showcase deep red and white concentric rings. The great tasting leaves are excellent as greens or as an attractive contrasting addition to salad mixes. Uproot the beets when they are 2-3” for tender, sweet , and delicious roots. 

100 seeds 

PLANTING

Beta vulgaris

Germination: 5-10 days

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

They didn’t grow large?

They sprouted great and the green look good but the bulbs under are tiny. The golden beets to bought here did much better and are plum size and tasty. I’m going to try a different red type and hopefully they grow larger than bean size after 60 days in the ground.

ALL BUT ONE

Having shopped at Pinetree for a long while, I always have to order something. This year everything was successful except for the echinacea. I babied the seeds, used a heat mat and watched the lighting. All succumbed despite my efforts. The beets came up in the garden and I used some of the leaves for salad. Alas then the bunnies found them. Not much left. I plan to plant some in a container on the deck and hope they will survive. But my joy from Pinetree is their gardening gloves: They are wonderful. I wish I could afford to order a gross.

We'll See!

Ordered the Bulls Blood Beet seed along with others for planting in early summer. Haven't had luck with summer beets before. Was told by a coupler of masters, for THIS area, to hold off until mid-September. They will go into the dirt this week. We shall see.
