Description – Bolting is almost a thing of the past with this excellent globe beetroot! Detroit 6 : Rubidus will be ready to harvest over a week earlier than ‘Boltardy’, which it supersedes in all respects. Firm, smooth, deep red flesh without a hint of fibre, even when 12.5cm (5in) in diameter. Vigorous, high yields which are synonymous with F1 Hybrids.

Sowing – Sow seeds from spring to early summer very thinly in drills 3cm (1in) deep in rows 30cm (12in) apart.

Growing – When seedlings are large enough to handle thin them out gradually to 1cm (4in) apart.

Aftercare – The later thinnings will be large enough to use in a salad. Pull the beetroot when the roots are 4cm (1½in) in diameter or larger. The smaller the roots the better the quality. In mid autumn lift the remaining roots, twist off the tops and use or store in a clamp as you would potatoes.

Harvest – June to October
