"Detroit Dark Red" is the heirloom with perfectly round beets.
These smooth, sweet beets are an heirloom storage variety, a favorite since 1892. Luscious greens are great for salads and braising.
When and Where to Plant: Select a sunny, well drained location and sow seed as soon as the ground can be worked. Repeat at 3 week intervals
until late summer. For best results, loosen soil with spade or fork, fertilize
with vegetable food and smooth with rake. Great in containers and
sunny flower beds. Firm soil over seed and keep moist.
Care: Keep soil moist, weed free, and apply vegetable food every 4
Harvesting: Pull individual plants when roots are about 2"/5 cm. across.
