Best suited for special planting for fall harvest: Earlisweet Hybrid, Pacemaker II, Detroit Dark Red
Most seeds are multigerm (seedball) and germinate more than one plant per seed. Thin beets as they grow to insure optimal production. Beets can be transplanted, but perform best when directly seeded.
Beets are tender and very sweet if harvested when small and can be eaten raw like carrots.
