DETROIT RED GLOBE
A 19th century US heirloom beetroot producing fantastic, smooth, uniform, ox-blood globular beet with luxuriant red-veined leaves. This variety is resistant to downy mildew and does well in all kinds of soils.
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.
