Beets are commonly thought of as a root crop but some varieties of beet such as Bulls blood beet is grown every bit as much for the taste and beauty of its greens as the root, making the beet very versatile. Baby beets are also considered a culinary treasure. Like other root crops, beets need deep (at least 10 inches) loose and fertile soil to reach optimum size. In heavier soils grow only round varieties such as Detroit Dark Red longer varieties such as Cylindra could become deformed in such soil. Beets are cool weather crops so should be sown about four weeks prior to the last frost date or in the fall in warmer climates. Beet seeds are compound meaning that each seed pod contains up to six seeds but this does not improve germination. Because of this seeds should be sown on the heavy side (about an inch apart) thinning to two to three inches apart as they mature. Although for baby beets they should be sown closer together (10 to 15 per square foot) or grow them in clusters of three six inches apart. If you intend to save the seeds for future use grow only one variety of beets as they will cross pollinate.
