Halifax Seed - Beet - Touchstone Gold
55 days. Smooth golden roots with bright yellow flesh retain their colour when cooked. Excellent, sweet flavour. Tops are strong with pale golden petioles. A great addition to your root garden.
Growing Tips: Plant seed as soon as the soil can be worked in early Spring. To ensure a continuous supply of fresh beets all season long, sow additional seeds every 2 weeks into earlysummer. Place the seed in rich, well-worked neutral soil 1cm (1/2") deep, with 10-15 seeds per foot. To hasten germination, soak the seeds for an hour prior to planting. When harvesting, leave 5cm (2") stub of stem to minimize 'bleeding' of the interior juice.
