This 1885 heirloom, sweet flavoured beetroot has been refined and improved over the years, and now has smooth, muted red skin and rich red flesh which stays tender throughout its growth. Resistant to downy mildew and cold conditions, this beetroot is perfect for keeping over the winter.

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.
