‘Golden Detroit’ Beet
Golden Detroit beetroot is a real delight. The outside is orange, the flesh is yellow and very soft. Its sweet flavour is very much appreciated raw in salad, cooked or marinated like other beets. Brings beautiful colors to the plate.
Plant when any danger of frost has passed. Divide each of the stems of your pot by spacing them out of 6″. Enjoys soft, rich and deep soil. Beets fear excess moisture. When the beets appear, be sure to hoe the soil and move up the soil to keep them covered.
Demanding, beetroot is not grown two years in a row at the same site. Do not grow it after other root vegetables such as potatoes or turnips.
Good companionship: Garlic, spinach, beans and lettuce.
