This tasty Royal Horticultural Society award winning beetroot is extremely versatile, with its small tap root making it well-suited for growing in containers. The uniform, smooth-skinned roots will stand for a long period without becoming 'woody', whilst the young leaves can be eaten as an alternative to spinach.
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.
