Lutz's Green Leaf Beet


About- Savor delicious, sweet beets year-round with Lutz's Green Leaf Beet. Vibrant roots have purplish red flesh, dark red edges, and a vitamins-packed green leaf. Enjoy boiled, pickled, roasted, or fresh in salads for a flavor-packed experience even when stored for winter. Unsurpassed storage capacity and scrumptious flavor make it a gardener's dream! 

When and Where to Plant- Sow seeds outdoors as soon as soil can be worked in spring. Seeds will germinate in 5-10 days. Select an area with loose soils and full sun. 

Care and Harvest- Harvest anytime after the root reaches 1 inch in diameter or as desired. Twist off the leaves rather than cutting to prevent “bleeding” which causes less intense color and perhaps less flavor.
