Days to Maturity

50 Days to Maturity. Certified Organic.

Fast growing beet with stunning concentric rings of pink and white flesh. Classic and "un-beet-able" flavor that is mellow and sweet. Disease resistant greens are even more vigorous than most hybrids. 

Direct seed. Sow in early spring and thin to 1 plant every 3". Best when harvested between 2-2.5" in diameter. Space wider and harvest larger for winter storage beets.

Seed Source Information:

Why is this variety premium? Chioggia Guardsmark beets are perfectly suited to Midwest production for the roots, but producing seed here takes a lot of extra care and effort, both in ensuring 100% isolation from GMO sugar beets, and keeping the seeds free of disease in our Midwest climate. That's why there are only 75 seed per packet.
