Product description

High Mowing Organic Seeds - A sure crop for early spring greens and roots.

Quick-growing tops are perfect for early beet greens, while roots size up quickly for bunched baby beets. Also a great full-size beet with vibrant tops. Similar in quality to Detroit Dark Red for early-season crops.

Characteristics:

  • Organic, non-GMO, and open-pollinated 
  • Early greens 
  • Excellent baby beet 
  • 2-3" roots 

Instructions - Heavy clay soils can be helped by the addition of organic matter, but make sure it is well composted or it will increase the risk of scab. Best quality arises from deeply cultivated raised beds, free of stones and debris. Direct seed as soon as soil can be worked in the spring, or up to 6-8 weeks before fall frost. The optimal soil temperature for germination is 55-75°F. Harvest when roots reach the desired size. For winter storage, allow the crop to stand for a few mild frosts, but harvest before a hard freeze. Roots store well for up to 6 months. For best storage of greens, cool with water immediately after harvest and refrigerate in a plastic bag to retain moisture.

  • Well-drained soils with acidity between 6.2-6.8; Tolerate 6.0-7.5 acidity 
  • Plant 1/2"-3/4" deep 
  • Thin to 2-4" depending on the desired size 
  • Row 12-24" 
  • Keep beets well-weeded
