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, as well as oblong roots, Rainbow Mixed Beets will 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.
