Sugarbeet

Vilmorin perfected sugarbeets in Europe 150 years ago and replaced tropical sugar cane. With 20% sugar content, it is both a roasted sweet beet or dessert as top chefs have proven. Yields 600g tubers.

How to grow

Sugarbeet 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.
