Lutz Green Leaf Beet Seeds (70 days)

Lutz Green Leaf is known for its long standing storage capabilities.  Also known by many as "winterkeeper" beets. 

Lutz has roots that are about 6" in diameter and can get much bigger without that woody taste. Make sure you thin out to 4-6"

They are reddish purple in color and have a sweet tender flavor. However, what Lutz Green Leaf is really known for is their giant, glossy green tops that are mouth watering. 

For winter storage, plant beet seeds the second week in July. Cover with mulch before the first freeze to protect from freezing.  Harvest as needed.

Planting Tips For Beet Seeds:

Beet seeds can be planted in early spring or midsummer.  Soak seeds overnight in damp towel before planting for excellent germination.  Plant beet seeds 1” apart and thin weakest seedlings to desired spacing.  Keep soil evenly moist to prevent beet roots from getting woody.  For longer harvest, stagger beet plantings every 2-3 weeks.

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - don't let the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely, and don't overwater and possibly have them rot.


  Revitalized "Caprese" Salad

Note: not all beets are good when eaten raw.  For this recipe, I recommend the Touchstone Golden Beet and the Crosby Egyptian Beet.


  • 1 lb. golden beet-thinly sliced
  • 1 lb. red beet-thinly sliced
  • 3-4 tbsp fresh mint – chiffonade
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • feta cheese (optional)


Toss the beets and mint in olive oil until coated. Add salt and pepper to taste.  Add crumbled feta if desired and serve room temperature or refrigerated.
