What's so special about beets?

Red beets are simply delicious. They're also full of vitamin C, folic acid, and antioxidants, and they improve digestion. So, they're as healthy as they are tasty.

Sowing and growing beets

Growing beets is simple. You can grow 9 beets in a 30x30 cm square patch.

Beet seeds are actually little nuggets that contain 3-5 seeds each. If they all sprout, you'll have way too many seedlings. Cut off the extras just along the soil mix to thin them out. You don't want to uproot them: if you pull one up, you'll pull the rest up with it.

Water regularly for evenly-sized, juicy beets. The only enemy of the beet is the beet fly: you can ward them off by planting some garlic or chives nearby.

You can find more info about our red beets here. Step-by-step sowing and growing instructions are included in the Planty Gardening app.

How do you use beets?

Cooked beetroot is delicious: boil them, stew them, or roast them in the oven. Or use them to make soup.

Raw beets are even healthier than cooked beets. Grate them into salads or green smoothies. Or try chopped raw beet in your muesli. Yum.

You can also eat the beet leaves. Toss the young ones in salads and green smoothies, and older ones in stews, stir fries, or pasta.
