Early Wonder Beet
(Beta vulgaris) One of the best varieties for beet greens. Tender, 2-3" red beets topped by vibrant 18" greens. Very early producer. 50 days to harvest. Approx. 100 seeds/pkt.
CULTURE: Plant seeds outdoors once soil temps have reached 50 degrees. Pre-soaking seeds for 24 hours will improve germination. Sow 1/2" deep, 1-2" apart in rows 12" apart. Keep soil moist until germination has occurred (5-7 days). Thin to one plant every 3-4". Beets can be harvested at any time and the tops are also edible. A second sowing can be made in late summer for fall harvest.
