BT182A - Taunus Coated
Taunus is an improved cylindrical beet that is perfect for slicing. Harvest at full size or as baby ‘fingerling beets.’ The highly uniform roots have deep purple flesh, minimal zoning and high resistance to cracking. It grows to a height of about 30cm (12”). An excellent beet for slicing, pickling and chipping. Hybrid breeding means that the whole plants are uniform, smooth, and early. The tops are quite tasty as well. Direct sow beets starting late April in short rows. Repeat at two to three week intervals for a longer harvest window.
These seeds are coated with an inert, organically certified layer which helps to minimize clumping in storage and seed sowing machines. The coating is approved by organic certifiers in Canada, the US, EU, and Japan.

How To Grow
Beets are incredibly healthy eating. Both the roots and the leaves are an excellent source of antioxidants, minerals, and vitamin C. They also contain betaine, a compound that is essential for cardiovascular health. Eat them raw, cooked, pickled – you can even make beet chips! Most important, it is very easy to grow beets from seed.
