A cracking additon to the detroit beetroot range, a reliable cropper with deep crimson globe shaped roots as the name suggests.Sow mid March-July, or under glass in January-February to crop May onwards.
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.
