RED ACE BEET (F1 hybrid 51 days)

This beet provides the ideal combination of early maturity and standing in the field for a long period without bolting or toughening up. We picked beets from the same planting for a period of 2 months and the last ones harvested were nearly as good as the first. Tops are fairly short, 12”. Roots are very smooth with an excellent flavor. 

100 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.

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.

seeds !

I love the Pinetree seeds company because the choices are diverse and very select. I always find the special variety heirloom, old time favorite or something new I want to plant in my vegetable community garden plot. Size of seed packet which is perfect for a community garden plot 30' X 40" Great strata squash- the best black Krim early and tastiest- better disease resistant than most except for prudens purple or cherokee purple . Summertime lettuce good for New Jersey humid heat- and Tasty firm leaves. Golden beet not easy grower in my garden Red ace much better .
