Touchstone Gold Organic Beet (55 Days)

Slice open the pale orange spherical roots for sunshine golden flesh that has a delectable sweet taste, raw or cooked. It keeps its marvelous color during the cooking process so afterward it can shine bright on a dinner plate. Touchstone performs well in the garden and is notably more reliable than other golden type beets. 

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.

How much does a packet plant: 20-25 foot single row

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.

    Swiss chard in the beet package?

    In years past I have been very satisfied with this product. Two years ago however, they did not grow at all. They germinated and then inexplicably died, even after replanting. Everything else in my garden did fairly well, so I don't know what happened. Last year, I tried again. this time I got big beautiful plants, but then I realized it was all Swiss chard! I don't know if it was a mix-up in packaging or what. I know I didn't mix my packages up because I also got Swiss chard as expected where I planted from the Swiss chard packet of seeds. I am trying again this year, and hopefully will get golden beets!

    I have used these beets for a few years. I like them and will continue to buy them as long as they are available.
