Cylindra Organic Beet Seeds 4020. Heirloom Vegetable. Approx. 170 seeds/pkt (60 seeds/gram).

Dark red 15cm (6in) long cylindrical roots have a sweet, nicely coloured flesh and are perfectly shaped for slicing. Cylindra is an excellent storage beet and is quite a favourite in the kitchen due to its ease of peeling! The roots are at their best when young. An early 1890’s introduction.

 Successive sowings as late as the first of July helps extend the harvest. Beets produce a compound seed which means each seed can produce up to 4 sprouts, so thinning is essential for good root formation - thin seedlings to 10cm apart. You can use the tops of thinned beets as a source of baby greens. Irrigation is important during dry spells up until the roots begin to swell. Fertilizer improves quality and size of roots.
