A tough, old-fashioned variety!
A deliciously sweet beetroot with yellow flesh and an orangey skin that was introduced in the 20th century by W Atlee Burpee & Co - currently trending in various top restaurants. These beets (Beta vulgaris 'Burpee's Golden') are usually harvested at about the size of a tennis ball when they're then still nice and soft. Will not stain, just like the white beetroot.

Beetroot seed needs no prior treatment - the seed is ready to use.
Beetroot may require some extra fertiliser (a sprinkling of granulated cow manure), especially potassium once they're growing well. Water extra in periods of drought and keep the bed free of weeds. This will promote good healthy growth of your beetroot.
