The Yellow Beetroot 'Burpees Golden' is a very old, fast-growing and biennial root vegetable that originally comes from the Mediterranean and has been around since the 16th century. Century in Europe is cultivated year-round. Already in 2000 BC. The archetype of the bete [Beta vulgaris] was grown and used. In America and England, this variety is a long-kept and popular kitchen treasure. The variety develops healthy green foliage with yellow leaf veins. The optically unique golden yellow colored round beets with striking bright white rings have emerged from the whiteness and grow just as robustly and are resistant to drought. The special taste is unmistakable-pleasantly juicy-fruity and is much sweeter than the beetroot. Excellent as raw food, for jubilation or in a smoothie. For year-round cultivation.

Subtropic climate (Mediterranean) (e. g. B. Portugal, Spain, Italy)
From February after the last frosts, sow directly into the open air. We recommend pre-cultivation in small bowls from January to December.

Moderate climate (e. g. B. Germany, Switzerland, Poland)
Sow directly into the frost-free open air from April to July. We recommend pre-cultivation in small bowls from March to August.

We recommend the pre-culture for prayers, for this purpose let the seedlings grow in a small bowl up to the first visible bed leaves, then peck them into the desired container. After peckering, let the seedlings grow at moderate temperatures until they are planted out as seedlings. The planting of the seedlings in the bed is carried out from the 2nd Pair of leaves after the cotyledders.
Prote prefers a sunny location with a nutrient-rich, humus-rich loam soil. Prepare the soil for prayers with deposited animal manure. Avoid waterlogging.

Additional tips
In order to quickly obtain a fine, crumbly and well-drained soil, an additional incorporation of biochar and primeval rock flour is recommended.

Type of propagation
Spread occurs via seeds.

Plant care
The bed in which bed plants grow can occasionally be a little drier, but the soil should never dry out completely. Regular water giving causes faster growth. M It animal manure prepared beds and planting in mixed culture, replaces additional fertilization.
