Description

Beetroot 'Burpees Golden' is a sweet-tasting and brilliant-looking organic beetroot, it's fantastic for mixing with the purple in a salad.

I sow one row of orange next to a row of purple and harvest a few roots of both each time. Germination is sporadic so sow plenty of seeds.

Please note, illustrated packets are being introduced gradually over the coming months, availability may vary.

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.
