Thompson & Morgan StartAGarden Beetroot Chioggia 80 Seed

£1.49

Beetroot – Chioggia

This is an unusual, easy to grow, space saving beetroot with rosy pink outer skin and an intriguing 'bullseye' combination of rosy-red and white on the inside. This fades to soft pink when cooked adding interest to salads. The beetroots are tender, very sweet in flavour and ideal for salads, pickling, baking and as a cooked vegetable.

Sow outdoors in an open sunny position. Prepare the soil by raking until it is fine and crumbly, removing any large stones. Make shallow channels (drills) in the soil 30cm apart. Sow the seed thinly, 1cm deep 1cm apart and lightly cover the seed with soil. When the seedlings are large enough to handle thin to 5cm apart for 'baby beets' or 7cm for larger, heavier roots. Water regularly, especially during dry periods. Keep the plants cool and moist to prevent the plant running to seed (forming a flower stalk).
