Beetroot Burpees Golden is an unusual beetroot in that the roots are orange/yellow in colour unlike normal red beetroot. It does not stain or bleed like the red ones and it goes a golden colour when cooked.

Burpees Golden has a sweet flavour and good texture when picked at golf ball to tennis ball size and it is resistant to bolting.

Use like a normal beetroot in salads, pickled or cooked. The 'baby leaves' can also be used in raw salads or left to mature and cooked like spinach/chard. The germination of beetroot can be poor so soak for half an hour before sowing to wash off the natural inhibitor.

'Burpees Golden' has a lower germination rate then most others so sow more at each station to ensure success.

Beetroot Burpees Golden Seed Information

Seed Quantity: Approx 100 seeds per pack.
Site:
Any, although sandy soil is particularly good but not freshly manured as it can cause forking. An open sunny spot is ideal.
When to Sow:
March to July. They are good to sow successionally through the season.
How to Sow:
Soak the seed in warm water for an hour before sowing (it helps germination), Sow thinly in rows, the rows should be 30cm apart. Cover lightly with 2.5cm of soil. Firm gently and water carefully. Seedlings will start to show 7-21 days.
Care:
Thin seeds to 10cm apart.
Harvest: June to October. 8-10 weeks from sowing, this is earlier for smaller baby beetroot. The tops can be removed when 5-8cm tall for attractive salad leaves. Twist off the leaves leaving a 2cm stalk and then the beetroot will not bleed. The leaves can be treated as 'cut & come again' leaves.
