RED CLOUD BEET (F1 hybrid 50 days)

4

Germ 5-10 days
A dark red, vigorous growing beet with a well attached top of good color. It is very resistant to bolting and a single planting can be harvested over a long season. What really sold us on this variety was the exceptionally sweet flavor and fine texture. It is also a good choice for greens. 100 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

Red Cloud Beet

I’ve tried half a dozen varieties of beets, always searching for the ‘perfect’ beet. This is it, no need to keep looking. Love the flavor, texture and shape. They are tender from baby stage till fall, never getting woody or overly earthy tasting.

Red Cloud Beet

I grow beets in my garden every year. I usually grow Detroit Reds. Last year I grew Red Cloud. Red Cloud is by far and away the best beet I have grown. Just absolutely beautiful specimens. I am growing them again this year and I recommend them.

Gorgeous, tasty beets

I'm in the Phoenix area, where we sow in fall for spring harvest. Honestly, I can't remember why I chose Red Cloud, but they are perfect beets. The tops aren't very large, but they are strong. The beets are good-sized, very globelike. The taste is excellent. I roasted, pickled, steamed... They were slow to bolt, even in the desert. Perfect beets.
