Approximately 1,500 seed per OZ
Beets are rich in vitamins and iron. Roots and tops are of value for table use. Plants thrive on a wide range of well drained soil types. PLANTING: Begin sowing beet seeds when soil has warmed some what after thawing in the spring. Sow about 10 seeds per foot, 1/2′ deep in a row
or scatter in a band. If you what large beets, thin to a spacing of 4-6″ apart. For a continues supply of greens or small tender beets, sow every
14 days until late July. For winter storage, sow about 10 weeks before heavy frost expected. HARVEST: When 1.5-2″ diameter, pull plants.
Clean and cut off tops before using fresh or canning for later use. Stock beets can be harvested anytime before a hard freeze. Store in a cool,
dry place that will not freeze. Stock beets make a great livestock feed if chopped in small pieces. You will need 2 OZ of seed per 100′ row
Western Sugar Beet
$0.50 – $35.00
Intended to be planted as a wildlife food plot item.
If you want to eat the white flesh of a sugar beet, cook
it rather than eating it raw. Scrape off the skin with a
spoon’s edge, or slice it off, and then cut it into cubes.
While you can boil or saute, try roasting sugar beets —
just like you would roast standard beets — to deepen
their sweet flavor.
