Halifax Seed. 55 days. Grows 2″ across. This golden beet has a sweeter, milder flavour than red beets. Tops are great in salads and taste just as good as spinach when boiled as greens. Use fresh or for pickled beets.

Growing Tips

Growing Tips: Plant seed as soon as the soil can be worked in early Spring. To ensure a continuous supply of fresh beets all season long, sow additional seeds every 2 weeks into earlysummer. Place the seed in rich, well-worked neutral soil 1cm (1/2″) deep, with 10-15 seeds per foot. To hasten germination, soak the seeds for an hour prior to planting. When harvesting, leave 5cm (2″) stub of stem to minimize ‘bleeding’ of the interior juice
