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.
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.
