Description

A traditional variety for organic growers which is a healthy, quick-growing crimson beetroot, with sweet flavour and perfect, round globe shaped roots. Eat small, or large and remember to pick the central baby leaves for salads too.

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.
