Planting & Harvesting

Seed Depth: 1/2″ (13mm)

Plant Space: 4″ (10cm)

Row Space: 18″ (46cm)

Sprouts In: 6-12 days

Start outdoors in loose, well-drained soil in early spring as soon as soil can be worked or up to six weeks before fall frost. Golden beets do not germinate as strongly as other beets, therefore, plant seeds thickly. Beets prefer a cool climate and can tolerate mild frost. Plant seed every few weeks for continuous harvest.

Keep soil evenly moist until they germinate. Beets have a hard time breaking through crusted soil.
