Beetroot 'Cylindra'

A uniform and uniquely elongated beet that is perfect for bottling. Just as sweet to eat as its round companions, and ideal for closer spacing as the roots grow down instead of swelling out. 50 gram roots at 8 week harvest.

How to grow

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. They tolerate salty conditions. Soak the seed overnight for even germination. Roots with irregular colour, or woody, tough roots can be the result of irregular watering or a very high pH- above pH 7.5.
