Taste of Italy! ORGANICALLY GROWN Chioggia Beet (Candy Stripe Beet) Seeds, Heirloom, NON-GMO, RARE, Purple, Italian. (a.k.a. Candy Stripe Beet) Pre-1840 Italian heirloom, introduced to the U.S. before 1865. Named for a fishing town near Venice. Uniquely beautiful flesh has alternating red and white concentric rings that resemble a bull’s-eye when cut. A feast for the eyes; wonderful for fresh eating and pickling. Retains markings if baked whole and sliced just before serving. The greens are mildly flavored, with a light green color. 50 days. Sowing Method: Direct Sow Soil Temperature: 50-75F Planting Depth: 1/2" Height At Maturity: 9-12" Days To Maturity: 50 Days Sun/Shade: Full Sun / Partial Shade Spacing After Thinning: 4" Germination: 14-21 Days Germination Rate 95% Planting Instructions Soak the seeds overnight before planting to soften the hard seed coat and speed germination. For sweet, tender beets grow the plants in cool, moist weather. In the north, plant beets throughout the spring and in mid- to late summer. Start planting 30 days before your last spring frost date and continue with successive plantings at 3- to 4-week intervals into July, depending on how hot your summer is. In the south, plant beets in the fall and early spring. Beet roots are ready to harvest in 45 to 65 days; greens can be harvested as soon as they are large enough to eat. Sow seeds 1/2 inch deep (1 to 1 1/2 inches deep in hot weather), 1 inch apart. In dry climates, plant in a well-soaked, 6- to 8-inch-wide furrow about 3 inches deep. Cover seeds with 1/2 to 3/4- inches of soil. For greens only, sow seeds 1/2 inch apart in all directions. Care - Thinning is necessary, as you may get more than one seedling out of each seed. Thin when they read about 2 inches high by pinching them off. Pulling them out of the ground may disturb the close surrounding roots of nearby seedlings. - Established plants should be thinned to 3–4 inches between plants. - Mulch and water well. Beets need to maintain plenty of moisture. - Any necessary cultivation should be gentle, beets have shallow roots that are easily disturbed.
