Plant in early spring; a few weeks before last frost date through mid June. Successive plantings will extend the harvest period. Plant seeds ½ inch deep in rows 8 inches apart, or scatter seeds; thin to 4 inches. (The greens of the thinnings may be eaten, see below). Harvest when beet (root) is 1½-3 inches in diameter. The bigger they get the more tough they become.
Primarily Grown for it's root, snip off greens and wash root under cold water. Cover with water in pan and boil until tender (about 30 minutes), drain and serve warm as a side dish or let cool/refrigerate and use sliced in salads.
