Beetroot - Pablo
This is a regular show winning variety. It is a popular, high quality variety with excellent flavour. The deep red roots are uniform in shape and size, and provide an excellent source of folate and a good source of potassium.
Sow outdoors thinly where they are to crop, 2.5cm deep directly into finely prepared soil which has already been watered. Allow 30cm between rows. Seedlings usually appear in 7-21 days. Thin seedlings to 10cm apart. Water well until plants are established. Regular sowings made every three weeks should ensure a continuous supply of young beets. Harvested roots can be stored in dry sand for winter use.
