A result of quick
and steady growth, the best beets are sweet, smooth, tender and
have good colour inside.
Sow seeds 2.5 cm [1"] apart and 1.5 cm [0.5"] deep.
Thin to 8-10 cm apart when plants are 8-10 cm tall. To
prevent scabs, ensure the soil is rich with humas. For best
taste and appearance, harvest when globe varieties are about
8 cm wide.
