Beetroot Detroit 6 Rubidus
Beetroot Detroit 6 Rubidus. Bolting is almost a thing of the past with this excellent globe variety! Beetroot ‘Rubidus’ will be ready to harvest over a week earlier than ‘Boltardy’, which it supersedes in all respects. The firm, smooth, deep red roots can reach 12.5cm (5″) in diameter, but retain their superb tender flesh without a hint of fibre. This vigorous beetroot holds an RHS AGM, and produces high yields which are synonymous with F1 Hybrids.
Height: 30cm (12″). Spread: 15cm (6″).
March – July
June – October
How to sow
Direct sow beetroot seeds outdoors from March to July in a weed free, sunny position in fertile, light, well drained soil. Sow beetroot seeds thinly in shallow drills at a depth of 3cm (1″) and 30cm (12″) apart. Germination will usually take 12 to 24 days. When large enough to handle, thin out the seedlings within each row to 10cm (4″) apart.
