Early Wonder Beet (50 days, Heirloom)

Heirloom 1911

Somewhat earlier than the other full-sized beets. The tops are medium to tall and excellent for greens. Root is globular with a relatively small taproot. Dark red color and good flavor. 

300 seeds

Germination: 5-10 days  

PLANTING:

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 50-85 degrees F.

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/2” deep

Outside Sowing: Early spring with soil temperatures at least 50 degrees F. Sow 1-2” apart, thin when plants are 2-4” tall, 3-4” apart. Soaking seed overnight aids in germination. Germination is slower at lower soil temperatures.

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.

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 thinnings 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.
