How to Grow Golden Detroit Beets from Seed
Golden Detroit beet is a cool weather favorite best sown directly outdoors 4-5 weeks prior to final spring frost or 4-5 weeks before the first autumn frost. Sow 3-4 seeds 1/2" deep and 1-2" apart in fertile, Organically rich, well-drained soil with a pH of 6.0-7.0. Seeds germinate in 5-10 days, thinning best starts to every 3-4" as true leaves establish. Beet seeds may be pre-soaked for 24 hours to encourage germination. Golden Detroit beet can be sown every 2-3 weeks for replete season-long harvests. Avoid using fertilizers high in nitrogen causing plants to produce plentiful vegetation, but smaller roots. A top layer of mulch will help roots cool and retain moisture.
For the best results, you'll want to plant the seeds three to four weeks before the average last frost. To encourage germination, you can soak the seeds for twenty four hours before planting. After planting, water the seeds every two weeks. After thirty five days, the beets will be mature enough to harvest. This strain of beet is used as a first early variety of beet for mid-summer sowing and storage.
Golden Detroit Beets in the Vegetable Garden
Beets are a sweet, sugary, and short-term cool weather favorite able to be sown multiple times during the year for quick and successive harvests. Just like carrot, radish, and many other root vegetables, beet is quick to maturity and thrives when sown directly outside in the garden bed. Although widely known for being a deep burgundy color, the hardy beetroot is available in many shapes and colors including heirloom classics White Detroit, Golden Detroit, and Chioggia.
Benefits from full sun to partial shade lighting. At 35 days, the "baby greens" can be harvested. At 50 days, the full leaf greens can be harvested, and at 55 days the roots are ready for harvest. Golden Detroit Beet thrives in full sun and partial shade. Greens should be harvested when 3 inches in height for maximum flavor.
Harvesting Golden Detroit Red Beets
Most varieties of beet are ready to harvest in about 50-60 days from sowing or when showing 1" in diameter above soil, but will remain tender even up to 3-4" in diameter. In compacted soils, carefully loosen soil around roots before harvesting with help of a gardening fork. Beet greens can be harvested like lettuce or any culinary herb when 2-3" tall. Small tender greens can be enjoyed fresh in a salad mix while larger, coarser greens taste best when lightly sauteed.
About Golden Detroit Beet Garden Seeds
Golden beet made its debut in 1970. If you are annoyed with those pesky red beets "bleeding" all over your counters, then this is the beet for you. Want to wow your dinner guests? Slice them straight out of the garden when they are almost golden-orange and toss them in a salad like we do. They don't seem to have the earthy taste some beets can have raw. So they are just yummy and healthy raw!
Cook them and they turn buttercup yellow. Golden beets retain a silk smooth sweet flavor even when cooked.
Golden beets are globe shaped and remain mild even when they get older. The tops can't be "beet" (lol couldn't resist) either; they are tasty, green and even sweet to some palates.
Eat beet tops before any sign of wilting for maximum flavor. Vinegar pairs well with beets. In most cases, the smaller the beet, the sweeter the beet, and the larger the beet, the more "Ëœearthy" the beet will taste. Walnut oil pairs very well with warm beets. To minimize the beet color from excessive bleeding leave the stem plug in place and skin on while cooking.
