Beetroot – Burpee’s Golden (Organic)

£2.90

An unusual beetroot producing brilliant orangey yellow roots which mellow to a rich golden colour when cooked. Developed by breeders at the Burpee seed company in USA in the 1940s, it quickly became a hit with gardeners due to its sweeter and milder flavour compared to other beets.

It is a key ingredient in Ronja’s delicious raw beetroot salad!

Beetroot tips: Early sowings can be made indoors in modules from February and transplanted 4-5 weeks later. From March seeds can be direct-sown with protection from frost. Maincrop beetroot is direct-sown outdoors from April. Seeds should be sown into soil with a reasonably fine tilth. Beetroot ‘seeds’ are clusters of seeds which means they will need thinning to achieve their final spacing (30cm between rows, 10cm in-row).
