Beetroot 'Burpee's Golden' (Organic)

Introduced to the vegie garden community through Burpee's Seeds in the USA in the 1940s, 'Burpee's Golden' remains popular with chefs and gourmet growers because of its sweet flavour and golden glow. Be sure to try it roasted.

How to grow

Soak seed overnight before sowing. Sow direct into a well prepared soil. Each seed contains 3 plants, so thinning will be required as plants germinate and grow, to ensure adequate root growth. Young seedlings can be added to salads or transplanted. Sow every 3-4 weeks to extend your harvest. Water regularly, especially during germination. Beetroot prefers a rich soil, with plenty of well rotted compost dug in. Drainage is important, as is a pH of 6.5-7, so add some lime or dolomite if needed. Beetroot of irregular colour, or woody, tough roots can be the result of irregular watering or a very high pH.
