Beetroot Cylindra is an easy-to-slice, long, dark red beetroot which is slow to go woody. The flavour and texture are very good indeed. Beetroot grows well on most well cultivated soils.
Drop seeds 12mm deep in rows 30cm apart. Keep soil moist. Thin out to 10cm apart when large enough to handle. Sow thinly and repeat every 4-6 weeks for succession.
