Beetroot Darko Strip Pack is a reliable and easy-to-grow variety that produces tender and sweet beets with a deep red color. This variety is suitable for growing in containers, raised beds, or directly in the ground. The beetroot has a good resistance to bolting, making it ideal for growing in warmer climates.
The best position to grow beetroot is in a sunny spot with well-draining soil that has been enriched with organic matter. The soil pH should be between 6.5 and 7.5 for optimal growth. Beetroot can be planted in early spring or late summer, with the seeds sown directly into the soil at a depth of 2cm and 10cm apart. Keep the soil moist and weed-free during the growing season.
Beetroot Darko will be ready to harvest in approximately 60-70 days after planting. The beets can be harvested when they are between 5-8cm in diameter, depending on your preference. They can be stored for several weeks in a cool, dry place.
To promote healthy growth and development, feed the beetroot with a balanced fertilizer before planting and then every two to three weeks throughout the growing season. The foliage can be cut and used in salads or as a garnish, while the roots can be cooked in a variety of ways, including roasting, boiling, or pickling.
