Organic Touchstone Gold Beet Seed (55 days)

 

Touchstone is the best yellow open pollinated beet out there hands down. 

Round, smooth, golden roots retain their color when cooked. 

Good uniform shape for an open pollinated beet.

Buttery, fine texture and sweet when eaten raw. 

Touchstone has glossy green tops. 

Does not bleed like red beets. 

This is as sweet as a table beet gets.

Excellent farmers market beet.

Touchstone beet is a Farm Favorite!

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.
