Introducing the Detroit Dark Red Beet, a classic favorite with a rich history dating back to 1892. This heirloom vegetable is prized for its uniform shape and deep red flesh, which is sweet and full-flavored. The prolific plants yield 14-inch tops that can be used as greens. Detroit Dark Reds can also be grown as sprouts, adding a flavorful crunch to your salads and sandwiches. 1.5 g ~ 150 seeds.

Plant seeds directly in the garden starting 2-4 weeks before average last spring frost. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 65-75 degrees. Don't plant to early or an extended cold spell may cause plants to bolt. Sow thickly, then thin plants to 2-3" apart. Beets are somewhat shade tolerant. Harvest greens when plants are 4-6" tall. For tender beet roots, harvest when they are still small; around 1.5". Can be planted again in mid-to-late summer for winter harvest & storage.
