Cultural practices : sow seeds directly in the garden from May to the beginning of July. The beets will have a better taste when they grow quickly and steadily.

Soil : light and slightly sandy soil with a pH of 6.0 or higher. The soil should be free of stones and clumps to allow the proper development of the root system. Work the soil thoroughly with compost or manure.

Spacing : sow 1 cm deep. Clear plants 8 cm apart on rows, spaced the rows at least 30–40 cm apart.

Growing tips : heavy rains after a long period of dry weather will result in poor root colour. These drought periods will also cause tough or woody roots. Keep the beets well watered. A full sun exposure is ideal.

Harvest : beets are tender as soon as they reach half their size, but harden when they become larger. When the plants are young, the leaves make delicious greens.
