detroit red beets

gemination was nonexistent

I'm sorry you had trouble sprouting your beet seeds. We run regular germination tests on every seed variety we sell to be sure they are healthy seeds. This variety recently passed with flying colors, testing at 84% germination. However, there are many things that can affect germination, such as temperature, pests, and more. If you like, check out the 'Tips for Planting from Seed' under Gardening Resources on our website.

Delcious beets

I planted these seeds in my fall garden and have been enjoying beautiful and delicious beets and beet greens. We've had temperatures in the 80s and in the 40s and the beets just keep on growing!

Beets sprouted well

I planted them a few weeks ago and just about all of the seeds have sprouted. So far so good.
