Beetroot Cardeal has been specifically bred to make delicious little beetroots called baby beets which are sweeter in taste and tenderer than maturer beets
Cardeal has an easy-pick regular globe shape and shows a degree of resistance to downy mildew giving you peace of mind you won’t need to troubleshoot pesky diseases.
It is extremely sweet with the highest natural sugar content of any commercial beetroot. Fantastic for salads and healthy, it’s handily sweet so will appeal to young children too.
We recommend you sow seeds outdoors in rich soil. Sow seeds in rich soil every 4in (10cm) in a row. If you’re sowing in more than one row space rows 12in (30cm) apart to give your beetroot plants room to grow.
Keep well-watered as soon as the seeds germinate and this will put your plants in good stead. Once you’ve harvested your beetroots, bring them into the kitchen and steam them so they retain their lovely flavour and tenderness.
How your plants arrive
Your beetroot variety Beetroot Cardeal arrives to you as a well-sealed packet of 200 seeds with variety and cultural information on the front and the back of the packet.
This includes the best sowing time, benefits of growing the variety, harvests time, top tips and other handy bits of information to help you to grow your crop successfully and enjoyably.
Can’t plant straight away?
If you need to wait until the advised time of sowing which is given on the packet check the ‘Best Before’ date given on the packet and keep the packet in a dry and cool place like a drawer in an unheated room or garage.
About 10 beetroot. Hopefully enough for a couple of meals!
Really good beetroot, only tried them as small beets, very dark red and sweet.
