Detroit Beet (63 days, Heirloom)

Germ 5-10 days
Heirloom 1892
Has been the leading crop beet for the last 20 years, but has been grown for over 100 years. The crimson of the flesh also shows in the leaves. Large, smooth roots are produced but it is also good for greens at an earlier stage. Freezes & cans well with exceptional flavor. 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 thinning’s for beet greens or plant a heavily seeded row for baby beet greens. Sow every 2 weeks for a continuous harvest

I recommend this product

Beans, Beets, Lettuce, Radishes and Spinach. I can't leave out the inoculant.

During the past few years, I had used all the above items and found them to be just as I had hoped. The inoculant made a big difference with the peas and beans...for the better. The vegetables were delicious and plentiful. I'm planning on getting the majority of my cold weather crops in this next week. Have started the tomatoes, peppers and eggplant inside and am hopeful to see them popping through the seed planting medium. Thanks so much for a great product and super helpful staff. Have a great Spring and Summer.

Too early

The only thing I've planted to date was the white geranium and germination % was fine. Other items will be planted directly in the garden other than the egg plant which will be started in a week or two.
