Planting & Care

Soil & Water: Beets are easily grown; they prefer deep, loose soil and even, moderate water. Mulch once established to protect the roots from heat.

Planting & Growing: Soak seeds for at least 12 hours before planting to promote germination. Space 2" for greens, 3" for summer harvest beets, and 4" for storage growing beets. Tolerates light shade. Beets grow best with cool soil in spring and fall.

Harvesting & Storage: For best flavor, harvest roots while they are 1"-3". To minimize moisture loss in the roots, twist off the greens. Roots store well in humid, cool conditions. Greens should be eaten within 1 or 2 days of picking.
