Baby Beets

Baby Beets are sweet and delightfully tender; harvest when young and dainty to enjoy them at their best. Roast slowly and simply to bring out their full sweetness, with just a kiss of butter. Perfect for crudités, pickling, and delicious fresh salads. A great variety for smaller gardens.

Position

Full sun.

Sow

Each “seed” is a cluster of 1-4 true seeds in a corky base. Soak for 2 hours before sowing to ensure water reaches the seeds. Sowing in trays of Yates Seed Raising Mix will allow all seedlings from each cluster to be transplanted later.

Care

Transplant when 3-5cm tall into a sunny well-drained position. Apply Yates Thrive Soluble Fertiliser occasionally and keep seedlings well watered. Sow more seeds every few weeks. Protect from snails with Yates Blitzem.
