Beetroot Golden BX Manglebeet | Members Only Preservation Pack
GENUS: Beta SPECIES: vulgaris
Heritage Status: Overseas
Bio-Region of Origin: Koanga since 1996
Number of Seeds: 60
Description: Similar to beetroot but much sweeter, more tender, and grow far larger, with a bright golden colour inside and out. Doesn’t have the earthy taste often associated with beetroot, and they are great used in all ways as you would beetroot. The leaves are also very sweet and excellent raw or cooked. I love to cube them once cooked, and serve in a hot salad with vinaigrette.
Planting Instructions: Scatter seed into trays leaving plenty of space so they don’t need pricking out, cover with 3mm of seed raising mix. Transplant 4 weeks later at 20 cm diagonal spacings.
