The best mini beet. Babybeat is a true baby, meaning it is well-proportioned even when young. Unlike full-size beets harvested young, Babybeat forms a nice, round shape with a small taproot and smooth skin early in growth. Small, attractive tops. Beets are sweet, tasty, and the perfect size for cooking or steaming whole. Pick when about 2 inches for the best flavor. 40 Days to Maturity

Beets grow quickly in light or loamy soils with a pH over 6.0. In general, cool temperatures produce the best flesh color. Acute weather fluctuations will cause zoning (white rings) in the roots. Begin early sowings when the soil has warmed to 45°F/7°C. Sow 15 seeds/ft. 1/2" deep, rows 12-18" apart. Thin to 1 plant per 2". For a continuous supply of greens and small tender beets, sow seed at 2-week intervals until 8 weeks before regular heavy frosts are expected. Sow seed in a cold frame or indoors in early spring, about 5-6 weeks before transplanting out after heavy frosts become infrequent. Sow seeds 1/2" deep, 3-4 seeds per inch. Transplant out 3" apart in rows 12-18" apart.
