Organic Beets: Detroit Dark Red Planting Instructions:
Plant beets when the soil is first workable in early spring. The plants will do best ¾” deep and 1” apart, in rows 12 to 18” apart and in full sun. The best color and flavor develops with cool conditions and bright sunlight. To harvest beets continuously throughout the summer, replant every 3 weeks until midsummer. Mulch and water well, making sure the beets get plenty of moisture. Grow time is about 65 days.

Organic Beets: Detroit Dark Red Harvesting Instructions:
The ideal time to harvest Detroit Dark Red Beets for canning, pickling, and cooking is after 60 days, when the beets are 1 ½” in diameter, but beets can be harvested at any time. To harvest your crop, separate the green tops from the roots, leaving 1” of stem on each beet.

Did You Know This About Detroit Dark Red Beets?

Heirloom Seeds September 1, 2016
Reviewer: Jo Hunding from Lagrange, GA United States  
I appreciate the packets that the seeds arrived in. It is of a heavy grade material that seals the seeds from moisture and light. I really like how I can re-seal the packet for future use.

Reviewer: Linda Hastings from Colfax, WA United States  
I will only review a product after it has grown. These are wonderful tender beats with beautiful tops. I made pickled beets out of them
