If you'd like a change from the usual red beet, this attractive globe shaped, orange-yellow root turns golden yellow when cooked and has a lovely sweet taste, fine texture and tender flesh even when large. Leaves are light green and can be steamed or used raw in mixed salads.
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.
