SUGAR BEET (100 days)

2

Germ 5-10 days
These large gangly roots produce a natural source of sugar. The roots are very sweet and can be used fresh to add sweetness to dishes. With some research in processing and recipes, they can be made into sugar, syrup, molasses, and wine. Fun to grow and you will be pleasantly surprise when you try a bite of one. 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

Love these

I love these beets! I love to grow beets and seeds from Pinetree never fail me, so I decided to try to grow these sugar beets. I had thought about trying to process them for their sugar after looking them up on the internet. I didn't do that but I did eat them as a side with dinner. They were sweet and tender. My dinner guest loved them and asked for a few from my garden. I still have some seed and will be growing them again as well as buying more seeds for these delicious beets.
