Beetroot – Detroit 2 Crimson Globe


An improved strain of the ever popular ‘Detroit’. Beetroot ‘Detroit 2 Crimson Globe’ produces globe-shaped roots with rich maroon colouring and a good flavour. Ideal for successional sowing to produce high yields.

A favourite of mine, heavy yielding and great taste, I love them roasted with goats cheese and a mixed leaf salad dressed with a balsamic vinegar.

Regular sowings, made every three weeks, should ensure a continuous supply of young beets. Harvest: July-October.
