Beet, Detroit Dark Red (Beta vulgaris) seeds, organic


Family:  Goosefoot (Chenopodiaceae)

Biennial.  55 days to maturity.

Detroit dark red produces mid-sized roots, very round, intensely red. Direct seed in the spring garden by making a shallow furrow in a good seedbed, sprinkling in the seeds, barely covering, and tamp and keep moist until germination, which is rapid.  Thin to 4 inches apart.

Packet contains 100 seeds
5 g contains ~ 350 seeds
10 g contains ~700 seeds

Certified Organically Grown

PS:  In 2019 I planted 100 RF of these by direct-seeding in the garden on May 14th.  The beets grew pretty well, and I thinned them to 4 inches apart.  On August 6 I harvested 3 for my mother (pictured in gallery, with roots pointing up) and they weighed in at over a pound apiece.  That took 83 days.
