BEETROOT – CYLINDRA

Beta vulgaris

Beetroot Cylindra, a wonderful heirloom from Denmark & as its name suggests is a tubular beetroot. Smooth-skinned with dark purple-red flesh, it grows a dark red, elongated root 7 to 10cm long. This unique variety has a very fine, smooth texture with little fiber, the root maintains its sweetness & tenderness over a long growing season, and it’s especially lovely when roasted. The red-green leaves are sweeter and more “beefy” tasting than other beet leaves. Because of its uniform width, it is ideal for cutting into slices. Very productive in small spaces. Sow directly into the open ground in shallow drills.
