Thompson & Morgan Beetroot Detroit 6 Rubidus 200 Seed

£2.69

Beetroot - Detroit 6 Rubidus

Bolting is almost a thing of the past with this excellent globe beetroot! Detroit 6 Rubidus will be ready to harvest over a week earlier than Boltardy, which it supersedes in all respects. The globes are firm, smooth, deep red flesh without a hint of fibre, even when 12.5cm in diameter. It has vigorous, high yields which are synonymous with F1 Hybrids.

Sow seeds from spring to early summer very thinly in drills 3cm deep in rows 30cm apart. When seedlings are large enough to handle thin them out gradually to 1cm apart. The later thinnings will be large enough to use in a salad. Pull the beetroot when the roots are 4cm in diameter or larger. The smaller the roots the better the quality. In mid-Autumn lift the remaining roots, twist off the tops and use or store in a clamp as you would potatoes.
