Deep red beets have tender, delicious flesh. Harvest early for baby beets.
SOW in well-worked soil after danger of frost in spring. In frost-free areas, sow in fall. Sow thinly in rows 12" apart and cover with 1/2" of fine soil. Firm lightly and keep evenly moist. Seedlings emerge in 14-21 days. Thin to stand about 3" apart when seedlings are 1-2" tall.
