    The sweet flesh of this unusual variety is golden yellow - and this does not change after being cooked, so it's great for adding colour, as well as flavour to the plate. Even the young leaves are edible (and tasty), and these can be added freshly picked to salads, or cooked as you would a leafy green.

  • Growing Instructions:In spring, make a shallow drill 2cm deep and sow the seeds about 10cm apart. Cover again lightly and water in. Keep the soil moist (but not waterlogged) to prevent the roots from drying out as they grow. Beetroot can also be grown in containers: sow direct into the compost allowing about five seeds to a 45cm pot. Sow a half-row of seeds every three weeks for a regular supply of roots from early summer well into autumn.

  • Sow: March-July

  • Harvest: Late May to September

  • Approximate quantity: 200 seeds
