Avoid purple staining and colour bleeding by growing this unusual white beetroot. Globe Beetroot 'Albina Vereduna is much more acceptable as a vegetable when served with fish or poultry and adds variety and flavour far exceeding most red beetroots. The curved and wavy top leaf is high in vitamins and can also be served like spinach as a vegetable. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 15cm (6").
When the seedlings are large enough to handle thin them out gradually to 10cm (4in) apart. The later thinnings will be large enough to use in a salad. Pull the beetroot when the roots are 0.5in diameter or larger.
When growing beetroot, water as necessary to prevent the soil from drying out and keep the plants cool and moist. This will help to avoid plants running to seed. Roots can be lifted at any time from June to October once they have reached 1" diameter or more. Harvest any remaining crops before the first frosts. Beetroot can be stored until mid spring in boxes of moist sand in a frost free shed or garage.
