Grow a garden filled with Golden Detroit Beets, from freshly harvested beta vulgaris seeds. Golden Detroit is an heirloom variety that was introduced in the late 1820's. It differs from traditional red beets, with it's non bleeding flesh. The outer skin is brightly colored orange, while it's inner flesh is a golden yellow. Golden Detroit Beets are an excellent additive to salads. Just slice them up and toss them in. They are earthy, yet mild in flavor and can be enjoyed raw as well. The leafy green tops can also be enjoyed as a spinach alternative, and are a relative to Swiss Chard. Golden Detroit Beetroot plants are known to grow just over a foot tall, developing 2 to 3 inch roots, which can be harvested in roughly 50 to 55 days after transplanting
Beets, or "Beetroots" are an easy variety of vegetable to grow in your home garden. They date back to as early as 2,000 B.C., spreading from Babylonia to China, around 850 A.D. Forming round, globe shaped roots, Golden Detroit Beets grow much like carrots, turnips and radishes. Categorized as an annual, they grow quickly in the cooler temperatures of early Spring and late Fall. Once they are fully grown, they can be harvested, thus ending their lifecycle. If temperatures become too hot, your beets will begin to bolt. This simply means that your Beetroot plants will no longer send it's energy to produce it's roots, instead it will produce seeds.This can be beneficial if you are looking to collect seeds to regrow the following season.
