A choice variety, the tops, making small upright growth, allows planting in close rows, important where space is limited. Skin and flesh are deep red, tender, fine grained and very sweet. A splendid variety for baby beets, canning or winter storage.

SOWING…Plant seed outdoors as soon as the soil can be worked. Plant in rows 12 inches apart spacing seed 1 inch in the row. Cover seed with ½ inch of fine soil, well pressed down. Keep soil moist until seeds start to grow. For a continuous harvest, plant every two weeks until the first of August.

THINNING…When plants are3 to 4 inches tall, thin to 3 to 4 inches apart in the row.

GERMINATION…Germinates in 7 to 14 days depending on soil and temperature conditions.

REMARKS…Young beet tops make excellent greens which are used like Swiss Chard, and can be grown all summer. Roots are 2 ½ to 3 inches in diameter.
