Description
Detroit Dark Red Beet Seeds:

Very good yields of dark red, juicy beets
with a small tap root.
Blood red flesh that is sweet and tasty. 

Beautiful when canned or pickled.
Tops and thinnings are excellent for greens.
Introduced to the US in 1892,
this was developed from the popular
 European Early Blood Turnip. 

Dark green leaves streaked with crimson veins
can also be harvested for salad or braising. 

Approximately 75 seeds per packet.

Days To Maturity: 50 to 60 days

Planting:

Detroit Dark Red Heirloom Organic Beets:

Sow successive crops all season, starting 2-4 weeks
before last frost in spring,
and continuing until a month before first frost in fall
. (Sowings in intense mid-summer heat
may not germinate satisfactorily.)
Sow where the plants are to grow,
1/2 inch deep, 4-6 inches apart, in full sun
on a neutral (non-acid) soil.
Most "seeds" are really capsules containing multiple seeds,
so thinning to single plants is necessary
. If thinned gradually, the thinnings
can be enjoyed as greens
. Keep soil evenly moist.
When mature, lift and store in the refrigerator
or root cellar. Late crops can be left
in the ground, mulched deeply,
and dug as needed right through the winter months.

How To Harvest Detroit Dark Red Beet Heirloom Seeds

Beets will grow in height and eventually flower.
Seeds are ready to harvest when they are dry.
The entire seed stalk can be brought in
to dry further before threshing.
Use a 1/4" and 1/8" screen to help with cleaning.
Beet seeds can remain viable for
many years under cool and dry storage conditions.

Reward Points 2 points will be rewarded to you when you buy this item.
