Unique and Nutritious Detroit White Beet seeds!
You get the distinctive taste of beets without the annoying red stains. The flavorful roots are a dusky white and fantastic in salads.
Till in aged manure before planting. Beets require especially good nutrition and a high phosphorus level to germinate. Go easy on nitrogen however, an excess will cause sprawling greens and tiny bulbs beneath the soil.
Wait until soil reaches 50°F before planting.
Plant seeds ½ inch deep and 1-2 inches apart.
Make sure soil remains moist for germination.
In zones with low moisture and rainfall, soak the seeds for 24 hours before planting.
Early crop can be planted in March/April, and late crop anytime from June to September. Successive plantings are also possible as long as the weather doesn’t exceed 75°F. Space plantings about 20 days apart.
Winter crops are a definite possibility in Zone 9 and above.
