Beetroot is an essential ingredient in many Eastern European dishes. Monoruba has long, cylindrical roots that are perfect for slicing; with firm, crimson flesh that is slow to go woody. Produces only 1 or 2 seedlings per ‘cluster’ which makes thinning much easier.

ROAST – BAKE – STEAM – SOUP – SALAD – PICKLE
Where: In a prepared seedbed or direct into pots or containers in full sun.
How: Sow thinly in rows 20cm (8in) apart or in blocks. Firm gently and keep moist. Cover lightly with 15mm (1/2in) of fine soil. Seedlings appear 14-21 days.
Care: No thinning needed. Keep moist and weed free. Harvest: 8-12 weeks from sowing. Tip: For continuous crops sow every 2-3 weeks.
