Beet Organic Seeds for Planting Heirloom Non-GMO B250

Beets are one of the easiest vegetables you can grow. They're almost never troubled by pests or diseases. They don't need staking, pruning, or fussing. Just sow the seeds and let the plants grow for about 6-8 weeks.

Beets are a favorite cool-weather crop but lend themselves well to season extension throughout much of the growing season. With 3-week succession planting, beets can fill the shelves of a market display or root cellar for much of the year.

Count: ~150+
Plant or Animal Product Type: Vegetable Expected Blooming Period: Summer to Fall Sunlight Exposure: Full Sun Expected Planting Period: April to May USDA Hardiness Zone: 3-10 Expected Plant Height: 12 Inches Soil Type: Sandy Loam Moisture Needs: Regular Watering First-rate crops grow quickly in light or loamy soils with a pH over 6.0. In general, cool temperatures produce the best flesh color. Acute weather fluctuations will cause zoning (white rings) in the roots. TRANSPLANTING: Sow seed in a cold frame or indoors in early spring, about 5-6 weeks before transplanting out after heavy frosts become infrequent. Sow seeds 1/2" deep, 3-4 seeds per inch. Transplant out 3" apart in rows 12-18" apart. DIRECT SEEDING: Begin early sowings when the soil has warmed to 45°F/7°C. Sow 15 seeds/ft. 1/2" deep, rows 12-18" apart. Thin to 1 plant per 2". For a continuous supply of greens and small tender beets, sow seed at 2-week intervals until 8 weeks before regular heavy frosts are expected. DISEASES: Keep beets well irrigated to prevent scab, the same disorder that affects potatoes, causing raised brown rough spots on the mature roots. Internal breakdown or browning is most likely to occur in alkaline soils after prolonged hot, dry periods. This is caused by a boron deficiency. Rotate crops to prevent Cercospora leaf spots. HARVEST AND STORAGE: Fork or undermine, lift plants, wash and hydrocool, and store bunches 10 days at 32°F/0°C and 95% relative humidity. WINTER STORAGE OF ROOTS: Sow about 10 weeks before heavy freeze is expected. Cut tops, wash, and store 6 months at 32°F (0°C) and 95% humidity. DAYS TO MATURITY: From direct seeding; subtract 14-21 days if transplants are used.

Plants should be up in 7 to 14 days. In hot weather, cover the seed with sand or light-colored mulch. For a continuous supply of beets, make several plantings 3 weeks apart.
