Ruby Queen Beet
(Beta vulgaris) Early producer of 2-3", perfectly round beets with medium red skins and dark red interiors. Very smooth texture and fine flavor, the perfect variety for canning. Performs well even in poor soils. 52 days to harvest. Approx. 50 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.
I’m so glad these guys are growing, I’m looking forward to their harvest and check on them daily, it’s still early in the season but so far so good
Currently sprouting. They love the cool weather that we have been having.
