Beetroot 'Boltardy' is a favourite sweet, round purple beetroot, which has provided me with the bulk of my beetroot and baby leaves for salad for years. Beetroot 'Boltardy' is bolt resistant, so you can sow it from early in the season until late. Highly recommended.
|Soil Type||Sandy, Neutral|
|Moisture||Well-drained, Moist but Well-drained|
|Sowing, Seeds, Planting||Soak seed in warm water for half an hour before sowing. Direct sow every 3-4 weeks from early March to July. Sow thinly, 5cm apart in rows 30cm apart.|
|Care Tips||Don’t water unless soil is very parched, over-watering encourages leaf at the expense of root. Fantastic planted with chamomile, onions and lettuce.|
|Harvesting||June-October - store them overwinter. From spring sown seed, these take about 8-10 weeks from grow. Harvest earlier for small golf ball size beetroot. To harvest, pull alternate plants down the row, in effect thinning, to leave room for remaining beetroot to develop. Remaining roots will enlarge and store for winter.|
|Cooking Notes||Cut the tops off before cooking, as this helps to lock in the nutrients. Cook whole, and then peel the skin to maintain the colour. Tops can be eaten at 5-8cm tall in salads - they are delicious.|
