Beetroot 'Super King'

This delicious hybrid beet is a strong and consistent grower, and quick to develop to generous full size. Super King forms attractive globe shaped roots, with tender flesh and a sweet, slightly earthy taste.
Superb slowly roasted, used in relish, fresh salads, or as the ultimate in burger ingredients.

Position

Full sun.

Sow

Each “seed” is a cluster of 1-4 true seeds in a corky base. Soak for two hours before sowing to ensure water reaches the seeds. Sowing in seed raising trays will allow all seedlings from each cluster to be transplanted later.

Care

Transplant when 3-5cm tall into a sunny, well-drained position. Apply Yates Thrive Soluble Fertiliser occasionally, and keep seedlings well watered. Successive sowing will ensure continuous harvest. Protect from snails with Yates Blitzem.
