Description

Cylindra is an old Danish variety with deep tapered cylindrical red roots about 6-8 inches long. It is smooth-skinned with dark uniform purple-red flesh. The tops are small and reddish-green in colour. Cylindra has tender flesh, with a sweet flavour. The roots are ideal for cutting into uniform slices (it is sometimes called Butter Slicer). Gives high yields within small areas.

Sowing Advice

Sow where the plants are to grow, 1/2 inch deep, 4-6 inches apart, in full sun on a neutral (non-acid) soil. Most "seeds" are really capsules containing multiple seeds, so thinning to single plants is necessary. If thinned gradually, they can be enjoyed as greens. Keep soil moist.
