LUTZ WINTER KEEPER BEET (80 days heirloom)

5

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

best ever,

I grew this beet in Mpls, and everyone raved about them, sweet, delicious, and wonderful greens. Now I live in the north woods, almost in Canada, but was able to grow them in spite of our short season. The deer found them very tasty also. My favorite beet, and at 72 , I've tried many

Most delicious beets

I have been growing Lutz's winter keeper most of my life and find them to be the sweetest and best beet for all around eating. The greens are better than spinach if harvested before the hot summer gets underway. You can't go wrong with this beet seed. Great for pickling too.
