Beetroot 'Cylindra'

Cylindra produces unique elongated, slender roots that are ideal for slicing. Smooth textured skin, with rich red flesh and a sweet, subtly earthy flavour. Perfect for roasting, pickling, grating into slaws, or adding to pasta or risotto to infuse them with vibrant beet colour.

Position

Full sun.

Sow

Each “seed” is a cluster of 1-4 true seeds in a corky base. Soak for two 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. Obtain continuous supply by successive sowing. Protect from snails with Yates Blitzem.
