Min Qty: 4 g

Description:  Early 1800's Italian Heirloom, beautiful red and white ringed flesh.  Very tender and sweet.  To keep the concentric red and white stripes, bake the beet whole and slice just before serving.  Young leaves can be eaten fresh and cooked when older.

Planting Instructions:   55 days.  After the danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed up, direct seed 1/4-1/2" deep in rich, moist soil with good drainage in a location with full sun. Thin seedlings to 6" apart when they're 3-4" tall. Plant every 2-3 weeks for a continuous harvest. In zones 8+, plant in fall. Beets prefer cool temps.
