Boltardy beetroot is a popular variety of beetroot that has a sweet, tender flesh and vibrant red color. It is typically harvested when the roots are still small, at around 2-3 inches in diameter. This variety of beetroot is easy to grow and thrives in well-drained, fertile soil. One of the main advantages of Boltardy beetroot is its resistance to bolting, which means it is less likely to go to seed prematurely, making it an excellent choice. The roots have a sweet, earthy flavor and a firm, yet tender texture, making them a versatile ingredient in a variety of dishes. They can be roasted, boiled, pickled, or grated raw into salads. Boltardy beetroot is also a great source of nutrients, including fiber, vitamin C, and potassium.

Sowing and Growing Guide

Boltardy Beetroot

Indoor Sowing:

  • Sow seeds indoors in modules or small pots from late winter to early spring (February to March).
  • Use seed compost and sow one seed per module or pot.
  • Water gently and place in a warm, bright spot.
  • Seedlings should emerge within 1-2 weeks.
  • Once they have developed their first true leaves, transplant into larger pots or into the garden.

Outdoor Sowing:

  • Sow seeds directly into the garden from mid-spring to early summer (April to June).
  • Choose a sunny, well-drained spot with fertile soil.
  • Sow seeds thinly in rows about 30cm apart.
  • Water gently and keep soil moist until seedlings emerge.
  • Thin out seedlings to 10cm apart when they are large enough to handle.

Growing:

  • Beetroot prefers a moist, fertile soil and a sunny spot.
  • Keep the soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged.
  • Feed every few weeks with a balanced fertiliser.
  • Harvest when roots are 3-4cm in diameter, usually 12-16 weeks after sowing.
