    Beetroot – Cylindra

    £3.99
    (10 Plug Plants)

    Unusual, easy to grow and deliciously tasty
    This cylindrical beetroot has smooth skin and dark purple-red flesh. We love it for being so easy to slice, and it is perfect for pots too as it really needs very little space to grow. The roots tend to poke above the soil, but they can be earthed up and will remain in good condition for several weeks until you are ready to harvest them. Beetroot is very easy to grow, especially using our organic plug plants which come with a complete growing guide.

    Number of plants: 10 plug plants

    Variety: Cylindra (organic*)

    In the kitchen: The roots of this beetroot are sweet with an earthy-caramel taste, especially lovely when roasted. Or you could try boiling the beetroot or sliced up and in salads.

    Delivery Info: Available to order now for delivery in Spring/Summer. Please see FAQs for up-to-date delivery info.

    Planting advice: You may find multiple seedlings per plug – you can thin these out by pinching off excess seedlings. Plant 10cm apart in a sunny spot.

    Harvesting: Harvest once you can see the crown of the beetroot has reached golf ball size or bigger.
