Beetroot – Flaming Barrel (Organic) ***NEW FOR 2024***

£2.60

A new golden beet variety specifically bred for its sweet taste and less earthiness.

Named after the famous festival in Ottery St Mary, Flaming Barrel is our new favourite beet and we are very pleased to be able to offer it in our collection.

The roots are elongated and have a deep yellow/orange colour. When cooked they are deliciously sweet. A must have for the veg patch.

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).
