BEETROOT Detroit Dark Red

Selection from Packet of 50 Seeds, 25g, 100g & 250g

Sweet tasty, and extremely nutritious root vegetable. The foliage is also highly regarded for taste and is high in iron. The top growth can be eaten as chard or spinach. This is the most widely used variety for both baby leaf and roots. Typical medium green tops with tinges of red can be cut for baby leaf mix in 30 days. Beetroot Detroit Dark Red is resistant to downy mildew. It grows for most of the year in most regions and is great for salads and dinners. 

Sowing Instructions

Beetroots are remarkably easy to grow and can be grown across a wide range of climates. It prefers moist, sunny conditions with no excessive heat. It is sown as a warm-season crop in most regions but performs best during the cooler, drier months in tropical zones where it may prefer some shade in summer conditions. 

Sow seeds direct or in punnets in winter/ cooler times in tropics and anytime in milder climates. Space plants 10cms apart in rows 20cms wide.

Harvest leaves after 35 days and after 60 days for the root. 

A propagation note will be supplied with the seed packet.

The only issue I have with all of your seed is the quantity of seed in each packet. Not enough for anyone with a large garden!

We grow Detroit Red Beetroot in our Urban Farm area and we appreciated the prompt and very practical service. We will definitely be back for more seed from Happy Valley Seeds in the future.
