Description

This very heavy cropping old show bench variety has been around since well before the 1880s in England. It has long red parsnip-like roots and an excellent, delicate flavour, and is paler red in colour when cooked than most modern globe beetroots.

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.
