Your friends and family are going to love this highly potluck-able Beet. Follow the green tops down the light gold stems to the enormous roots and you'll find a mild and sweet gold-orange beet. The beets retain their flavor and texture up to ~7" long and ~3.5"wide. They are best harvested, however, between 2-2.5" in diameter. As you harvest and prep for a delicious meal you may find some interiors that have the chioggia type alternating rings of color.

Direct seed. Sow in early spring as soon as soil can be worked, ideally in a loamy, well drained soil.Thin to 1 plant every 3". Best when harvested between 2-2.5" in diameter, but can stay mild and tender even when 3.5" wide and up to 7" long. For a fall planting, sow 8-10 weeks beforet he first frost. Tip: space wider and harvest larger for winter storage beets. Consistent irrigation is important during germination and root development as drought can lead to woody and less flavorful roots. Avoid overhead watering to reduce foliage disease.

50 seeds per packet.
