50 days. This beautiful beet has deep reddish-purple leaves! Very sweet and delicious; the baby leaves are a rage in salads. The beets are tasty too, and have pretty pink rings inside. Our best variety for production of vitamin A in the leaves; one serving contains about a days worth of A!
Begin early sowings when soil has warmed to 45°F (7°C). Sow 15 seeds/ft. 1/2" deep, rows 12–18" apart. Thin to 1 plant per 2". For a continuous supply of greens and small, tender beets, sow seed at 2-week intervals until 8 weeks before regular heavy frosts are expected. Baby Leaf: Sow 1/4– 1/2" deep at 1–2 seeds/inch in rows at least 2" apart from midspring into late summer (fall where winter is mild). Planting too densely can lead to overcrowding and stunted growth. When planting more seeds/inch, be sure to plant rows farther than 2" apart.
