BEETROOT – EGYPTIAN

60 seeds – Beta vulgaris

Egyptian beetroot is as good as its word, these lovely little beets looked as though they’ve been given a quick flattening! Just 7 to 10cm across, they’re the perfect size to serve whole. This plant is quite compact, reaching just 20cm high. Equally suited for spring or autumn harvest, it’s ready in just 7 weeks. The best thing about this beet is the flavor. Very sweet, it’s as delicious to eat as it is pretty to look at. Adaptable to sandy soil, it is a premium beer with a get-up-and-grow attitude you’ll love. A plant produces good yields of purplish-red beet. Ideal for boiling, pickling, baking, & freezing. This smooth round flat shaped beet is one of the best beetroots on the market.
