LUTZ WINTER KEEPER BEET (80 days heirloom)

Germ 5-10 days
Heirloom 1880’s
This old time variety remains the best for both storage and beet greens harvested at any time. Roots are half long, deep purple and will retain their sweetness if properly stored throughout the winter. 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

Meh Growth

Hi! I live in Arizona, so we grow beets in the winter. For some reason, the Lutz Winter Beets are growing very slowly. I thought it might be a soil issue, but the broccoli growing nearby are growing just fine. I may try them again next year, but for now, I'm unimpressed. If you know a variety of beet that works well in your area, I would just stick to that.
