Grown primarily for striking dark red-purple leaves that provide incredible contrast in salad mixes and also have a tender, sweet flavor. Outstanding choice for a red leaf in winter harvest salad mixes. Color intensifies as plants mature. The small roots are also tasty when harvested early. Beets thrive in cool weather. Sow approximately 10 seeds per foot, ½ in. deep. Keep moist. Can be sown every 2 weeks for a continuous harvest.

I planted these for my daughter-in-law and she was very happy enjoying her roasted beets. She thought they were very tasty. I planted them in a raised garden so I sprinkled the seeds around, not in a row, which helped keep the weeds down some, and they sprouted up quickly.
