Cultivation: Best color and flavor develop under cool conditions and bright sun. In warm weather, beets may be light colored, less sugar and color zoning in the roots. Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in spring after last frost in a warm, sunny location or partial shade in hot areas. In temperate areas, sow in late summer/early fall as well. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Too much nitrogen will produce lush foliage and small root development. Like chard, beet seeds produce more than one plant, so will require thinning when seedling are 4-5" tall. When the plant has a strong root structure, harvest a couple of leaves from each plant. Mature plants can be cut back to 1-2" above soil for re-growth for a cut-and-come again harvest.
