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.
Each "seed" is a cluster of 1-4 true seeds in a corky outer coating. Soak for two hours before sowing to ensure water penetrates to seeds. Sow direct where they are to grow or in trays of Yates Black Magic Seed Raising Mix. When 3-5cm tall, separate clustered seedlings and transplant.
Grow in a Sunny well-drained position. Apply Yates Thrive Fish Blood & Bone Liquid Plant Food regularly, and keep seedlings well watered. Make successive sowings every few weeks. Protect from snails and slugs.
Pick young leaves and add to salad mixes.
Store in a cool dry place away from direct Sunlight. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
