“Ruby Queen” Beet Seeds offer an exceptional variety of bright red beetroot, loved for its sweet flavor and tender flesh. This variety is popular with gardeners for its ease of cultivation and versatility in the kitchen.

Growing beets from seed is relatively simple. Seeds can be sown directly in the ground after the last frost, or started indoors a few weeks before transplanting outdoors. Beets prefer well-drained, sunny soil, but they can also tolerate light shade.

Once 'Ruby Queen' beet plants are established, they require regular watering to keep the soil moist. Weeds should be removed regularly to avoid competition with growing beet plants. Mulch can also be applied around plants to help retain soil moisture and reduce weeds.

“Ruby Queen” beets can be harvested approximately 55 to 60 days after sowing. Beets should be harvested when they have reached a suitable size for use in cooking, usually around 5 to 7 centimeters in diameter. The leaves can also be eaten like spinach.

In addition to being delicious, "Ruby Queen" beets are also rich in nutrients. They are an excellent source of vitamins A, C and K, as well as folate, potassium and dietary fiber, making them a healthy and nutritious food to include in any balanced diet. Beets can be eaten raw, cooked, pickled, or used in a variety of dishes, including salads, soups, stews, and side dishes.
