BEETROOT – Ruby Queen

(75 seeds)

$3.95

(8 customer reviews)

Excellent for canning in or eating fresh.

A popular canning variety, Ruby Queen beets are round with smooth skin and have a fine, buttery texture. Ruby Queens can reach a larger size than most beets without getting a woody texture or unpleasant flavour. They also do well in poor soils and maintain their shape in crowded situations.

How to Sow

Pre soak the seeds for 2 hours to moisten the hard seed coat. Beets can be started in trays and then transplanted but it is best to sow directly in rows approx 30cm apart. Plant the seeds in a rich soil about 15mm deep and about 10cm apart. Germination should take 1-2 weeks. Each beet seed pod holds about 8 beet seeds and these will need to be thinned out.

How to Harvest

Beet leaves can be harvested at any time. Beets can be harvested once they are about 4cm in diameter. Do not allow the beets to get larger than about 8cm in diameter as they will start to go woody. When harvesting, cut the stems to about 3cm above the beet to prevent the beet from bleeding.
